Jesper Nyrén biography

Born in Sala, 1979 I Lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden


Crystallising in Jesper Nyrén’s art are the patterns of a prism, a kaleidoscope or the light breaking through a window glass. Color and form are divided into different compositions, where each field has its own surface and structure. Despite of the abstract nature of Nyréns work, they depict an actual landscape dissolved into fragments and its outermost components. Jesper Nyrén often utilizes nature studies as a foundation for the color of his works and he explores the construction of painting and its composition.


Jesper Nyrén gratuated from the Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm 2007. He has exhibited in solo-exhibitions in Sweden and in Norway, as well as in numerous group exhibitions, including the Borås International Sculpture Biennial. He has been granted awards such as the Marabouparkens P.A.N.K-award, 2008 and the Baertling Scholarship, 2015. Nyrén has made several public installations, among those the New Karolinska, Solna, the subway station Gullmarsplan, Stockholm, and the facade at the Kv. Simonsland, Borås, Sweden. 


Galerie Forsblom has been representing Jesper Nyrén since 2017.
