WELCOME TO KARLSSON & WICKMAN

Karlsson & Wickman Gallery opened in 2010. Jon Karlsson and Folke Wickman have been established in the art and antiques markets in Stockholm since the 1980s, each specializing in 20th century Art and Design. 

 

“Ten years ago at an auction preview we were both looking at a fantastic Malagan head from New Ireland. Realizing that we shared a passionate interest in tribal art we bought the Malagan piece together and soon became friends. We began to collect African and Oceanic art jointly and the 20th century design objects in our gallery slowly started to mix with antique tribal art objects. 

 

In today’s market, art, design, and tribal art are sold in separate categories both at auctions and in specialized galleries. We decided to break with this tradition and do something new. 

 

Tribal art had an important influence on Modernist artists and designers during the first decades of the 20th century. Our concept is to show art and design from the Modernism era together with the kinds of tribal art and objects that inspired the Modernists. Decorating with this blend of objects creates beautiful, interesting, warm and soul-filled interiors.
