Camilla Engström’s practice encompasses painting, drawing, sculpture, and poetry. She explores autobiographical topics through humor, surrealistic landscapes, and figurative expression. Based on real life experiences and often portraying her alter-ego Husa, Engström uses her work as a diary and outlet for processing life’s events. Husa is confident, gender-bending, amorphous character who offers a humorous take on the issues face by the millennial generation.
Engström’s work is influenced by popular culture, sitcoms and iconic female artists such as Yayoi Kusama and Marie-Louise Ekman.
Born 1989 Örebro, Sweden, Engström is a self-taught painter. Her work has been exhibited in group and solo shows in Los Angeles, CA, USA and New York, NY, USA. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA, USA.
