“It's kind of a recharge, almost like meditating”: Watch supermodel Vilma Sjöberg paint a masterpiece

By Vogue Scandinavia's Video Team

There's more to Vilma Sjöberg than meets the eye. Beyond the runways and editorial shoots, the 22-year-old is an artistic talent too

When supermodel Vilma Sjöberg isn’t ping-ponging from city to city for catwalks and campaigns, she finds solace in painting. “I’ve always liked painting, even as a child,” she tells us in her Vogue Scandinavia cover story.

“But I’ve gotten more serious about it since I started modelling. It’s kind of a recharge – almost like meditating.” Her works evoke the Swedish landscapes that surrounded her adolescence, often bathed in a dusky blue.

Here, we set the supermodel up with a paint board and canvas and watch the magic unfold.
