Artistic photography is just too much of a narrow frame for Torbjörn Larsson. His unquestionable sense for aesthetics, light and composition is just a tease, a sort of "warm-up" sequence for what we are really about to receive by observing his photos. Soon enough, we realize that there is a story behind every and each of them...MORE

bo2 Konstrundan artists / Bo Hultén
The year after I bought Esperöd property, I got informed by Tor Nitzelius from Gothenburg Botanical Garden  that the impenetrable forest on our property contained a highly interesting collection of trees. About 3,000 trees from all around the world. The arboretum has become my passion and inspired me to my long study of nature's incredible energy.  How life arises. How important nature is. MORE

carsten Konstrundan artists / Carsten Nilsson
Trough past centuries wood carving was not a rare skill. Up to the twentieth century, all the furniture, even in common houses, was usually carved by hand. Tables and chairs, mirrors and cupboards, beds and closets, doors and even crates, were all ornamented by skilled craftsman. Today, it is an almost forgotten knowledge.  Welcome to the studio of Carsten Nilsson, one of the few left professional wood carvers in Sweden. MORE 
Oil, graphics and mixed media on handmade paper has remained my expression technologies and built with the sculpture in concrete and plaster. MORE

francatthetable art / Franco Paglialunga in Smedstorp
I work with iron, concrete and wood. I use some new but mostly old objects with a history and another former function. My products are not life-solving exhibition items. They should convey the desire to be used, relevant and not give a sterile storefronts feeling. The inspiration I have from my "Tuscany" childhood images that meld into the Österlenian light and colors. MORE
