About Levi Palmen
I was born in the Netherlands in 2003, nearby Maastricht. I grew up in the beautiful south of the Netherlands and I also lived in Germany, Belgium and Sweden. Nowadays is Öland my home.
When I grew up I noticed that I was different. I liked to work with my hands and was very creative. My fellow pupils noticed it too and started bullying me. I had a rough time at school and things started to get worse. I switches a few times from school to school to get a new start, but the bulling continued.
In painting I found an outlet where I could express my emotions and creativity.
In 2020 I met Louise Hävre. She is an artist at the lovely island Öland. She noticed that I needed some encouragement and helped me to improve my painting skills. Now in 2021 it is time to show my work to the public.
I work with different materials and mostly with acrylic paint.
‘I paint what I see, I paint what I dream,
I paint what I feel.
My work arises …’
