Helene Billgren’s exhibition FOR GOOD AND FOR BAD, Grafikens Hus c/o Wanås Konst, will open June 14. The show is produced by Grafikens Hus. Helene Billgren is one of Sweden’s most recognized artist. Her colorful paintings open the door to a mysterious and enchanted pictorial realm, now also explored in printmaking. She was born in 1952 in Norrköping, and studied at Valand Academy in Gothenburg. Helene Billgren has exhibited widely in Sweden and is represented by Galleri Magnus Karlsson, Stockholm.
Grafikens Hus is a center for contemporary printmaking. The center and its Art Gallery burned down in March 2014.
