My name is Julia Desiré Fuglestad Brodshaug, and I am an Abstract fluid artist from Norway. During lockdown I started focusing more on my art. I quickly fell in love with the impulsive and somewhat chaotic process of creating abstract art, forcing myself to step outside my comfort zone and listening to myself intimately and taking big risks in my art. Slowly I started to notice a shift in my mentality: my art started to become more and more instinctive and fun, with focus on big and bold movements, rather than perfecting every detail. One might say that I started to paint more for the process, and less for the perfect results. Later on, as the isolation started to get really intense, I started to post my art online for the first time, taking a big leap of faith. I have never dared to take up space and proudly show my art to the world, despite creating art from a really young age. It was hard to make that decision, but I choose freedom over boredom, control and isolation. And the responses were overwhelmingly positive. I was suddenly a part of a huge creative community with hundreds of people. I am so happy to now also proudly represent my art at M.A.D.S art gallery.
