Eye of the beholder!

I just make it, the art is in YOUR heart.


My signature Thor Bear Mountain is a direct translation of my actual name. In short this is my home and where you'll find my art. Pretty much anything I slowly accumulated during my years. (Wish it was more impressive)

I can not express my gratitude enough for family, friends and everybody that had patience for my slow pace and helped me create and add some big sculptures to my humble creations. You helped inspire and make many happy.
Mom, Dad, Satu, Martin, Jerker, Lasse, Fernando, Gracinja, David, Magnus (All Magnuses, there are many) Sebastian, Görgen, Eric, Stephan, Michael, Stefan, Weine, Daniel, Fleabag and everyone else

Thank you! :)


And to you reading this,

Welcome!





Oh and - "These ARE the droids your looking for!" ;)

INTRODUCTION

ABOUT THE ARTIST

I do think it is good if you can do something creative for your soul and paint or put together some modest sculpture. Even better if family and friends joins and suddenly you can put a something a little bigger together. So many thanks to my friends, family and everybody else that made this possible, there would be nothing without you! Thank you! :)


I just want to grab your hands and take you on the adventure of a lifetime. So lets go explore the limitless boundaries of art together.

A magical universe awesome beyond all limits.

I truly believe art is about transcendence.

Pherhaps the journey will take us to a glorius destination of heart and mind.

Join us!

Metal Sculpting

Thoughts and facts

Besides cave paintings Metal Art is one of the oldest artforms known to man. It is very recent we could start choosing from all kinds of metal and alloys, the doors opened with the 1800's Industrialism. Prior to this point there where fewer choices due to the processes required to gain metals such as bronze, copper, lead, steel. Arguably Gold is the oldest metal as it is the only metal that occurs in pure form naturally in nature and thus can be sculpted with simple tools or brute force if you so will. As I think and read about the mindboggling loss of art and knowledge through time the insight grabs hold of my very soul and chokes me to tears. Art is humanity at her finest, art is about ascension. Who would not have liked to see the mythical Polygnotos works of art, use the library card at the lost library of Alexandria, and think of entire civilisations painting on poor mediums that had no endurity att all transforming every single painting to dust... all of which nothing is left... all lost in the whirls of time. I cannot help making the association to metal, metal is one of the most enduring mediums we have.  A Copper pendant was found in Northern Iraq dating back 10.700 years (8.700BCE), Gold artifacts in Bulgaria dating back 6.450 years. It makes one feel humble...

Sculpting and shaping metal does feel like a real challenge. Some mastered this in history to stunning perfection.  For instance if you consider the art of the Samurai sword and the feat contained within, the idea that the Swords carried the souls of their keepers, is an appealing one. Sculpting is the aim to create something more than the sum of the parts. What of you could breath life in to a piece of metal, a sculpture. What if you could give it a soul...


INSPIRATION

RECENT WORK



New and projects in the making shared with hopes of spreading joy and inspiration..


The small Triplane is made out of a Stainless soap dispenser is a little sneak preview for you and is actually part of a larger picture, literally! More precisely an intricate detail of a large 3D steel-painting. Further some tributes to the Star Wars saga has joined my portfolio.The AT-AT Walker is finished coming in at 220-250cm. I'm also attempting to dust off my sketching as it probably comes in handy for future adventures of full size metal sculptures. May the force be with you!

SKILLS

EXHIBITIONS



I literally created all my life and never exhibited my art until a few months ago.


Someone close to me snapped a couple of cellphone pics that quickly spread followed by requests that I exhibit my art.

The idea that had frankly had been beyond my imagination. I assumed very few to none would be interested in my modest creative outlet and unknown name.

Surprisingly a lot of people came to see the fruits of my hobby at Kaleido Art Gallery. Local media thought it was fun and then a few more various media visited my art.

If you ever want to put a face to the funny word flabbergasted, think of me!
