Arnerdal's artwork is inspired by the immediate and emotionally involved communication achieved in children's art. Similarly, this is also found in artwork defined as outsider. Folk art, with its overload of patterns, ornaments, and riots of color, also inspires him, as well as the exuberance and slightly exaggerated language of the baroque.
