Tore Svensson shows a series of portraits with, to many art jewelers, well-known profiles. The color fields that make up hair, skin and clothes are at the same time individual parts that balance each other in color and shape.

Artist list

Tore Svensson
Tore Svensson is one of the pioneers of Swedish jewelry art and has a long impressive career. Experience that sits in his back, in his arms and hands. Paving the way for a new art genre requires perseverance, artistic strength, and perhaps also a bit of a playful mindset. These characteristics are also found in Svensson's works; large iron bowls shaped by thousands of hammer strikes and strict, geometric shapes with surfaces that give the works warmth and sometimes offer a well-balanced amount of humor.

Tore Svensson was educated at HDK-Valand in Gothenburg, where he later worked as a professor. Svensson's works can be found in several museums. For example the National Museum in Stockholm, the Röhsska Museum in Gothenburg, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra. In 1999 Tore Svensson received the Bayerischer Staatspreis in Munich and in 2012 he was awarded the Herbert Hofmann Pries in the same city.

During Schmuck-week in Munich (week 9) Four will be closed.
