International Artist Residence


Art See Ocean is a experimental studio where you get challenged out of conformity and given space for allowing yourself to think your own thoughts and work without premade results in mind.

Artist couple Stefan and Theresa Lekberg created Art See Ocean Gallery &

Artist in residence and house artists from all over the world.

-We have created a space to fearlessly go into your own creative process (life).

`What changes us most deeply is beauty,

It is the hardest to receive,

you have to prepare beauty its own space.

How can I take in more beauty?´ 

-Stefan Lekberg

Stefan Lekberg

Abstract painter, founder of Art See Ocean Gallery & artist in residence

Stefan is known for his large scale abstract paintings in mixed media and acrylic often three-dimensional.

Stefans art is groundbreaking, not bound by concepts or convention.

He paints intuitive, he is himself a witness of the art coming to life as much as the viewer.

Facing a Lekberg painting is like facing your inner world, shaking to the ground, it is very intimate.

The art is inviting us to the dance of life and death.

Stefan has lived from his own art being an abstract painter for the past 15 years. 

He lived and worked in Stockholm where he painted in his studio and ran a gallery from home where he arranged the popular "Art soup", inviting stangers to his home in Stockholm, for free art exhibition, live music, soup and wine. Art Soup lasted for nine years and began like a act against the big machinery in the art world and gallery systems.​

When he grew weary of the city and longed for more space and silence a place to call home to rest his soul and uplift the spirit. He found it in tiny Nynäs, a beautiful farm just beside the ocean in the archipelago between Trosa and Nyköping. Art See Ocean was born.

Just recently Stefan said yes to have a selected few dedicated clients who are committed to work with their lives.

Stefan has seven years of different family therapy educations and worked for 25 years as a supervisor and consultant for both private institutions and Swedish state social healthcare service. 

Stefan studied for Dr Carlos Chan for 11 years over a 20 year period.

Therapy techniques as psychodrama, family sculpting, different types of body therapy, yoga, qigong, shiatsu, bioenergetics and different meditation techniques.

He has over 20 years experience of working with individuals, couples and groups using these techniques and 30 years of practising meditation.
