  • A new exhibition in Estepona features a collection of abstract works using acrylic, resin and ceramic

Swedish artist Kjell Sporrong is to launch an exhibition of his abstract art in La Casa de Las Tejerinas in Plaza de Las Flores, Estepona, this evening (Friday).

Born in Stockholm in 1962, Kjell has spent his life exploring different creative directions. After studying music at the Adolf Fredrik Music School, he turned his attention to fashion design. Arriving on the Costa del Sol in 2000, the multitalented artist acquired a passion for painting, and several years later he began taking classes with Mijas-based artist Joy Fahey.

This resulted in his first art exhibition in Competa in 2019. His new exhibition, which was previously displayed in Nerja and Frigiliana, features a collection of abstract works using a mixture of medias, including acrylic, resin, ceramic and "lots of plaster to build up structure".

His paintings employ various techniques and include the Mystery Colour and the Paper Print series, and the somewhat sombre Dark Thoughts collection.

The exhibition, which runs until 21 October, will be open Tuesday to Saturday from 9am until 8pm. The artist will be on hand to discuss his art each day between 4pm and 6pm.
