Ida Thunström was born in Stockholm, Sweden in 1979. She holds a BA in Art History and Philosophy from the University of Lund, and a degree in Fine Arts from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. Her primary mode of expression is drawing, mainly in charcoal, which she intermingles with photographs and fragments of texts. Ida Thunström works with the same pieces over and over again, giving them new forms and meanings. Her work is in a perpetual state of change, a continuous interaction between the pictures and their new surroundings. Texts, pictures and photographs from recurring symbols, found throughout her artistry. Her work is founded on a great interest in the materials she uses, coupled with an intellectual approach and playful curiosity.
