Art Exhibiton in town

Contemporary Icons, Linocuts and Paintings by Mattias Olsson are in town! Mattias is exhibiting Contemporary Icons here in Hong Kong. The exhibition will be running from 16 – 28 April and opening hours are 2:30 – 8 PM everyday.

Mattias Olsson is a professional artist and illustrator based in Höganäs, Sweden. He regularly exhibits in galleries across Sweden and the rest of Scandinavia, and also takes part in group exhibitions all over the world. Over the years Mattias has been the recipient of several grants for his art and illustration. For example, Philip von Schantz fine arts graphic grant, Edstrandska stiftelsen and Malmoe artstudio grant! Mattias is further a well-known children’s book illustrator in Sweden and collaborates with authors such as Peter Ekberg, Helena Bross, Gudrun Wessnert and many more. Together with Odd Molly founder Per Holknekt, he has also participated in various projects with his illustrations such as the magazine Miss World and clothing brands such as Non Sense and Post fire dew.

The majority of art pieces in the up-coming Hong Kong exhibition are taken from a sequence of linocuts called Samtida ikoner/Contemporary icons. The hand printed linocuts show ”larger than life characters” of our time, famous people that we put on pedestals and shape into modern icons. Amongst others, you can see Astrid Lindgren, Zlatan Ibrahimović, Morrissey, Ingmar Bergman and Marlon Brando in very detailed figurative graphic art pieces and limited edition prints. Mattias will also show exclusive new work created for his Hong Kong debut, including large acrylic paintings that build bridges between Sweden and Hong Kong.
