Angelica Markén The Queen of ColourAngelica Markén, visual artist. Born 1974. Works figuratively in oil and acrylic. Living in Gothenburg, Sweden. I explore female personas & archetypes. I’m fascinated by the image of women and what we as viewers project on it.

”The image of the woman – and what’s behind it – fascinates me and will do for a lifetime”
