Mikael Wahrby has added another five motives to his appreciated series of Stockholm etchings.

At first sight, one realizes that Wahrby's artistry is characterized by depicting objects. But what makes his etchings special is his aspiration for symmetry. In his work he plays with the elements and components in the picture, adding and removing. The result is beautiful compositions full of historical references, places to look at from new perspectives.

Mikael Wahrby's pictures are etchings, a technique where the artist works directly on a copper plate, which is then etched with acid to fix the image in the plate. Wahrby's works are made on one plate, but in many steps - the parts of the plate that are finished are covered when other parts are to be processed and etched. To produce a finished print, takes the artist about a month. Read more about etchings here.

Västertorp is Stockholm's largest sculpture park that was built in the 1950s. Wahrby's etching includes sculptures by Erik Grate, Henry Moore and Arne Jones. Buy it here.

Stadsbiblioteket (the City Library), ed. art's neighbor, is constructed in exciting geometric shapes. The stairway to the entrance is partly enclosed by a functionalist terrace and the building itself consists of a cubist block with a high cylinder on top. Buy it here.

The Sagerska Palace, the official residence of the Swedish Prime Minister, was initially a small private palace in French Renaissance style. Beautiful ironwork, stucco and a centrally placed bay window dominate the etching. Buy it here.

Bollhuset (The ball house), also called the Finnish Church, is depicted with its soft rounded gable from the 17th century. The starting point for the etching is a dry-point engraving from 1920 by Gustav Isander. Buy it here.

Årstabron consists of a long series of concrete arches. Like a classic aqueduct, the bridge extends over Årsta holmar. The new railway bridge with its wave-like bottom part runs parallel to the old bridge. Buy it here.
