The Surface and Depth of the Body

Johannes Nielsen’s art vibrantly celebrates life and its inherent beauty. His masterful creation of bronze sculptures captures not only the intricate details of the human form but also the profound essence and emotions of the human spirit. His work, a testament to the beauty of existence, blends the physical and metaphysical into pieces that resonate deeply with viewers. This emotional depth makes his sculptures highly desirable to art collectors and buyers seeking art that touches the heart and stirs the soul.

Born in Falkenberg, Sweden, in 1979, Nielsen has become a prominent figure in the global art scene. His journey began in 2001 at Lund’s Art School, and in 2003, he moved to Dublin to study under renowned sculptor Patrick O’Reilly. This experience honed his skills and elevated his work, now showcased in public and private collections worldwide including Stockholm, London, Singapore, Hong Kong, Beijing, Hollywood, New York, and Montreal.

Since 2007, Beijing has served as Nielsen’s residence and creative base, where he lives with his wife and two children. His process is inventive and reflective, beginning with a 3D body scan to lay the groundwork for his creations. Nielsen is inspired by the juxtaposition of tangible and intangible aspects of human life. This fascination drives him to digitally sculpt, 3D print virtual models, and ultimately cast his sculptures in bronze, appreciating the blend of mechanical precision and natural beauty found in metal. By merging traditional techniques with contemporary innovation, he conveys a distinctive perspective on reality through his art.

For art enthusiasts considering collecting or purchasing art, Johannes Nielsen presents a compelling opportunity. His work delves into the human experience through a harmonious fusion of state-of-the-art technology and traditional sculpting methods. Owning a piece by Nielsen is more than an investment; it invites engagement in a dialogue about the core of human existence, captured in the timeless beauty of bronze.
