PNG distorted after loading

I load a PNG like this:

public void CreateFromPNG(string filePath)
            //check if the file exists
            if (System.IO.File.Exists(filePath))
                //make a bitmap out of the file on the disk
                System.Drawing.Bitmap textureBitmap = new System.Drawing.Bitmap(filePath);
                //get the data out of the bitmap
                System.Drawing.Imaging.BitmapData textureData =
                        new System.Drawing.Rectangle(0, 0, textureBitmap.Width, textureBitmap.Height),
                if(textureBitmap.PixelFormat != System.Drawing.Imaging.PixelFormat.Format32bppArgb)
                    Log.Error("PNG Pixel format not supported ("+ filePath +") -> " + textureBitmap.PixelFormat.ToString());
                SurfaceFormat format = new SurfaceFormat();
                format.Pixels = textureData.Scan0;
                format.SourceType = PixelType.Byte;
                //free the bitmap data (we dont need it anymore because it has been passed to the OpenGL driver
private void Create(SurfaceFormat format)
            textureHandle = (uint)GL.GenTexture();
            //bind texture
            GL.BindTexture(TextureTarget.Texture2D, textureHandle);
            Log.Error("Bound Texture: " + GL.GetError());
            GL.TexParameter(TextureTarget.Texture2D, TextureParameterName.TextureMinFilter, (int)TextureMinFilter.Nearest);
            GL.TexParameter(TextureTarget.Texture2D, TextureParameterName.TextureMagFilter, (int)TextureMagFilter.Nearest);
            GL.TexParameter(TextureTarget.Texture2D, TextureParameterName.TextureWrapS, (int)format.WrapMode);
            GL.TexParameter(TextureTarget.Texture2D, TextureParameterName.TextureWrapT, (int)format.WrapMode);
            Log.Error("Created Texture Parameters: " + GL.GetError());
            GL.TexImage2D(TextureTarget.Texture2D, 0, format.InternalFormat, Width, Height, 0, format.PixelFormat, format.SourceType, format.Pixels);
            Log.Error("Created Image: " + GL.GetError());
            //unbind texture
            GL.BindTexture(TextureTarget.Texture2D, 0);
            //create fbo
            fboHandle = (uint)GL.GenFramebuffer();
            GL.BindFramebuffer(FramebufferTarget.Framebuffer, fboHandle);
            GL.FramebufferTexture2D(FramebufferTarget.FramebufferExt, FramebufferAttachment.ColorAttachment0Ext, TextureTarget.Texture2D, textureHandle, 0);
            GL.BindFramebuffer(FramebufferTarget.Framebuffer, 0);
            Log.Error("Created Framebuffer: " + GL.GetError());

The PNG is loaded, but it is distorted and extremely pixelated, as well as missing colors (It's plain blue instead of light blue). What am I doing wrong?

Don't know if you've found your answer already since it's been a while but i'll answer so others with similar problems might be helped out,

- change "format.SourceType = PixelType.Byte;" to "PixelType.UnsignedByte"
- on Windows make sure that the "format" parameter in TexImage2D is "Bgra" not "Rgba"
- make sure blending is configured correctly
- try switching min and mag filter to Linear
