Artist Bio
Karl Fred Andersson (eg. Karl Fredrik), born February 17, 1921 in Nederkalix, Norrbotten, was a Swedish painter and artist.

Fred grew up in Norrbotten, but moved with his family as a child to Chicago in the United States, where they lived 1928-1936, before his father died and returned to Sweden.
As an artist, Andersson was self-taught, but made study trips to France, Spain, Andorra, Norway, England, Italy, Greece and Egypt. He painted coloristically vividly and intensely in an impressionistic "flickering" style.

From his debut in Stockholm in 1950 he participated in a number of separate and collective exhibitions, mainly in the Norrland and Stockholm region, including at Liljevalchs, Young cartoonist at the National Museum, Football in the Art at the Soccer World Cup in Solna 1958 and with the Artists' Cooperation Organization.

He is represented at the Moderna Museet , the Norrbotten Museum in Luleå and at the Sundsvall Museum.
