Alexander Nilsson (b. 1979) is born and based in Sölvesborg, Blekinge. He is a self taught artist who mainly paints abstract although his works are somewhat also borderline figurative. He reproduces philosophical thoughts and settings through allegories that may take architectural forms. Most commonly, he works in mixed media on canvas, but he also works in ceramics, wooden sculpting and silversmith, which occurs in his works.

Alexander is a member of Svenska Konstnärsförbundet (SK) and Konstnärsalliansen (KFA). Moreover, he has collectors of his works nationally in Sweden as well as internationally, e. g. in the United States and Europe.

”Art is for me therepeutical. According to me, art should be reflective both for the artist and the observer and through the works create a link between the two parties. To mediate an order and beauty through the chaos and ambiguity in the works is a way to show different levels of reality as well as life. With that, an artwork need not be strictly figurative or abstract.” - Alexander Nilsson

MENTOR: Nilsson’s autodidact mentor is Rolf Palvén, a Swedish painter, draftsman and former drawing teacher in Sölvesborg, Sweden.
