Mats Gustafson

Mats Gustafson has a special feeling for the transient nature of watercolour. In the late 1970s, he embarked on a career as an international fashion illustrator, and eventually made his breakthrough on the art scene. Gustafson oscillates deftly between fashion, nature and life studies. His subject matter may seem simple: conifers and rocks in landscapes, deers, lined faces, couture fashion and nudes. It is all about capturing beauty in its many forms. Mats Gustafson’s art is both elegant and subtle. His lines leave no room for mistakes. Light and shadow are rhythmically distributed on the paper. Colours meld to form volume. The subject matter in this exhibition ranges from nature, to nude figures and fashion.
