Manhattan-based artist Tony Sjöman (b.1975) draws inspiration from his Scandinavian heritage by incorporating complex geometric patterns into his murals, silkscreens, paintings. Tony’s use of clean lines and a muted palette echo the highrise silhouettes of the urban landscape, reflecting and abstracting the world around him. Tony’s murals can be seen adorning a broad array of walls in New York City and worldwide, from restaurants and hotels to private residences and office buildings.
For the past decade, Tony Sjöman has made New York City his home while creating an expansive portfolio of painting projects around the world. is exhibition includes a mural and a new series of prints that features a culmination of the motifs and components that have made up Sjöman’s signature work.
Born to Finnish immigrants in Sweden, Sjöman was raised in a working class housing project in Gothenburg, surrounded by grey concrete and tram tunnels. His upbringing is a primary source of inspiration for his work, often combining elements of a hectic metropolis contrasted with the serenity of Nordic nature.
