Gösta Wessel is a Swedish artist, researcher and professor. His work is characterised by advanced studies in colour and light, geometric shapes and patterns. He was born in Lund, Sweden in 1944 and studied art in Stockholm at the Royal Institute of Art. His work compromises both fine art and sculptures as well as permanent and site-specific installations for architectural and urban settings. He has taught and conducted artistic research in colour and light at his role as a professor at Konstfack – University of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm. His own artistic inquiry has always continued in parallel.
He has participated in several exhibitions both in Sweden and abroad. In 2018 his work was presented at the solo exhibition, Bli varse, at Konstakademien, Stockholm. He is represented at the public collections of Moderna Museet Stockholm, Dalarnas Museum, the Swedish church, Public Art Agency Sweden, municipalities and county councils. He may be most famous for his site-specific public art in Stockholm where he designed the subway stations Mörby Centrum and Axelsberg, the railway station Södra station, the adventure bath Eriksdalsbadet and the arches in the tunnels of Södra länken.
Gösta Wessel lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden.
