Carl Wellander


For the love of art.
I believe that art should create a connection from sculpture to beholder. You don’t have to like it but if it evokes a feeling then I’m on the right track.

Having worked with advertising and 3D graphics for 15 years. The time was ripe for something new. The change came in the shape of a gift from my wife on my 40th birthday in 2012. She gave me an exhibition scheduled one year later 9-24 march -2013. So since January 2013 I have been working with clay on a regular basis.

I’m a member of KRO and member of Svenska Skulptörförbundet.

I find that sculptures are made to be experienced outdoor and for that reason I have to taken the step towards a more outdoor friendly material.

My studio is located at Bryggeriet in Nyköping.
