Collection: Helena Gullström

She makes abstract figurative paintings as well as sculptures, using materials such as oil, acrylic, concrete and metal. After settling in Los Angeles, she studied with well-known Los Angeles artist and revered art professor Franklyn Liegel at Otis College of Art and Design, and he became a dear friend and guiding mentor. She has exhibited in the USA, Sweden and Italy and has collectors all over the world.

Gullström draws the alienated spectrum of human emotions from the outside world into sometimes almost genderless, fluid depictions of emotions masquerading as human form on a thematic canvas that one can only perceive as one's own unconscious psyche. She seems to dip brush and fingers into the very archetypal, unconscious energies and needs we all share for organic wholeness.
