Stockholm-born, New York-based realist figurative painter Alexander Klingspor’s vision begins in the unforgiving darkness of the long Scandinavian winter. Call it Nordic neo-noir, or perhaps a variety of kitsch that quotes knowingly from art-historical refuse.
He is represented by Albemarle Gallery in London and A Gallery in Sweden. His work has been the subject of solo shows at Albemarle, the Arcadia Gallery (New York), and Christie’s Stockholm, among others, as well as group shows during the Miami Art Fair and the L.A. Art Show.
His paintings are in the collection of prominent individuals in the U.S., U.K., Norway, Sweden, Germany, and Mexico, among other countries. Influential American art philanthropist Iris Cantor was an early collector.
