Angelica Wiik presents herself as artist, animal rights activist and foster hostess, living in Stockholm as well as Hudiksvall in Sweden:
“I am raised in Hälsingland as my family moved there in the 70's. This is where my parents ran a summer gallery, which made me interested in art at an early age. As a child I spent a lot of time in my mother’s studio, so I started painting early in life.
I love colours so naturally my pictures are colourful from a story-like, mythological world;
- A lot of women, animals and music always with exploding colours, and women sensually.
- A lot of people and colour, and eventually more and more animals. Earlier there was more of theatre and jazz life in bright red.
I have always loved painting a lot at night; I sing, dance and feel free. At daytime I'm easily disturbed, but during night time I'm always calm.

I had a period in my life when I couldn't paint at all. I ran several galleries and I got burned out. But eventually I started painting again and then my art exploded. Earlier the pictures were more volatile, but now stronger. I view myself as a better artist; I can be myself and stand for my values.
I only serve vegan food at my exhibitions and I forbid fur clothing. I have always been an animal rights activist, but after being burned out I started to get very passionate about my activism for real and I became vegan.”
- “We dance on the earth together. So respect all life, as you want to be respected.”
