Mikael Nilsson

Material: Woodwork | Location: Sweden
Swedish artist Mikael Nilsson focuses in particular upon depicting the menacing form of crows, resembling birds similar to those featured in the iconic Alfred Hitchcock film! The rough nature of the wood he sources lends itself to the ominous appearance of his birds.

All crows are unique and hand-carved with an axe and a knife, made from black-stained Lime wood. Born in Linkoping, Sweden in 1972, Mikael studied Handicraft and Culture at Linkopings University.

“I try to give each figure a personality, express a feeling, motion, gesture. I make crows because I like them and would like to have a real one as a friend.”
