About Karl Soderlund
Karl has been a fine artist his entire life and is well known for his portraits, seascapes and landscapes. You can find his work hanging in over 350 public and private collections. In 2002 Karl led the introduction of the Heisman Trophy Awards on national television by painting that year's winner. In 2010 Karl had his first Solo exhibit at the National Arts Club in NYC featuring his series "Iconic Obsessions". Karl also teaches at "The Studio" in Fairfield.

In my paintings the subjects are iconic in who they are or what they represent.  However, the real story is what is revealed within the painting.  I use representational symbols to create scenes within paintings to tell the story of the subject.  Like a puzzle, the closer you look, the more symbols you will find.
