Surgubbe 3 "Skapelsens krona"
They are comical, ingenious and angry. Read more about Ulla Wennberg's handcoloured "Surgubbar" here.
This print is watercoloured, which makes the print unique.
When Ulla Wennberg graduated from the Royal Academhy of Fine Arts in 1976, printmaking was the primary mode of expression for young artists. The art was for the people. Questioning social structures and multiplying the prints to spread the message as widely as possible was considered to be one of art's most important missions. The eighties came with a change of climate for the arts, but Ulla Wennberg has kept working in the same spirit. Satire remains a means to stimulate debate.
Wennberg works with hand-printed wood and linoleum cuts, but also sculpture and collage. She is an active part of the printmaking community today, and lives and works in Stockholm.
