Lars Lerin is born in Munkfors in Värmland, Sweden and is currently living at Hammarø outside Karlstad. Lars Lerin has lived in Lofoten for several years and is considered one of the world's most outstanding watercolourists.
He is known for his quite unique technique and he has developed his very own method in his use of colours. Grey, blue, and ochre dominate in varying nuances and nature is central to his art. Himself, he says that 'in reality, light is my subject'.
