Karl Holmqvist (born 1964), is a Swedish artist known for his text based works, poetry and readings. Holmqvist has exhibited at the ICA – Institute of Contemporary Arts 2009, CAM – Chelsea Art Museum, 2009, The Living Art Museum, Reykjavik (2008), Tensta Konsthall (2008) Manifesta 7 – Comitato Manifesta 7, Bolzano (2008) and at PERFORMA 05 – Performa, New York City, NY (2005)

Born in 1964, Karl Holmqvist was predominantly influenced by the 1980s. The 1980s were a tumultuous time culturally, and were marked by growing global capitalism, global mass media, significant discrepancies in wealth, alongside a distinctive sense of music and fashion, epitomised by electronic pop music and hip hop. Artists growing up during this time were heavily influenced by this cultural environment. The 1980s were a key decade in terms of politics, marked by the African Famine and the end of the Cold War, which was signified by the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. Neo Geo and The Pictures Generation became leading art movements during the decade, alongside Neo-Expressionism which became well-known in Germany, France and Italy (where it was known as Transavanguardia). Artists such as Anselm Kiefer, Jörg Immendorf, Enzo Cucchi, Francesco Clemente and Julian Schnabel were leading artists of the era, alongside Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring and Kenny Scharf, who established the street art and graffiti movements.

In 2022, LL’Editions published Leporello N° 07 by Karl Holmqvist. This artist’s book is part of LL’Editions flagship series; The Leporello Series.
