Mikael Wahrby

Stockholm - Sergels torg

Mikael Wahrby's Stockholm pictures are, just like his other artworks, frozen moments. Still life in the true sense of the word. Read more

In the artwork Sergels torg, Mikael Wahrby has depicted one of Stockholm's most visited places. In the foreground you see a tourist with a suitcase standing on Plattan's classic triangle pattern in black and white. The culture festival's tent is set up or packed down. The tram enters the picture with the text "Your dream city. How does it look?". In the center of the picture you see one of Stockholm's most classic sculptural works of art, the glass obelisk "Crystal, vertical accent in glass and steel". This work on paper in grayscale is full of details. You discover something new every time you look at the picture. Possibly that you as an observer can see that Mikael Wahrby has changed the perspective of the urban space and maybe even moved some buildings?

About frames

Mikael Wahrby has become known as a master of depicting light and shadow, often in detailed, black and white, prints. He brings forth the objects and the rooms themselves, giving them life, often through dramatic lighting and sophisticated shading patterns. In 2014 he was awarded the Nils G. Stenqvist's memory fund scholarship for his "love for the opportunities of the copper plate" and his "love of the motives, as well as to the craft itself." 

Mikael Wahrby is something of an institution in Swedish printmaking. In 1977, he graduated from the Royal Institute of Art and has since been working in this very special field of his, of which 10 years were spent as a lector at the institution where he once studied.
