Oscar Furbacken is a Swedish artist based in Stockholm working in various media including video, sculpture, painting and photography. The tension between nature and urbanity aswell as decay versus transcendence are recurring themes in his work. Furbacken’s depictions of nature often involve the use of scale and subtle lighting raising questions on how we perceive the world around us. He is currently represented by the Susanne Pettersson Gallery (S.P.G) in Stockholm Sweden.
