Artist Statement

Helena Gullström

Helena Gullström is a Swedish born artist that relocated to Los Angeles, CA when she was 20 years old.

Gullstrom is best known for her abstract figurative paintings as well as sculptures, using materials including oil, acrylic , paper, concrete and metal.

She has studied with well-known Los Angeles artist and revered art professor Franklyn Liegel at Otis College of Art and Design that became a dear friend and guiding mentor.

She has exhibited in USA and Sweden and has collectors worldwide including England, Switzerland, Sweden and USA.

Gullström pulls the alienated spectrum of human feelings from the world around her into sometimes almost genderless, fluid depictions of emotion masquerading as human form on a thematic canvas that one can only perceive as ones own unconscious psyche.

"The generous physical layers of paint and combined materials in Helena Gullström`s art creates a dreamlike imaginary world. The essence is both romantic and soulful. The work has the flavour of magic and miracles".

- Franklyn Liegel
