TONY BRYANT ESTEPONA.

Swedish artist Kjell Sporrong will launch his latest exhibition at La Casa de Las Tejerinas in Plaza de Las Flores, Estepona, on Friday 15 October. The collection, which the artist describes as "contemporary and abstract", includes various techniques and a mixture of media.

Much of the artist's work has a somewhat sombre feel, as he uses dark colours and tones, although for his latest collection he has used more colour and light, creating his works using natural materials like sand and stone.

Born in Stockholm in 1962, Kjell has spent his life exploring different creative directions, although it was when he arrived on the Costa del Sol in 2000, that he acquired a passion for painting.

The inauguration of the exhibition, which runs until 17 November, will take place between 6pm and 8pm on Friday 15 October, when the artist will be on hand to discuss his works and the techniques used to create them.

The exhibition can be visited from Tuesday to Saturday between 9am and 8pm.
