* note - this linocut is on thin paper as is the tradition for this process. As seen in the photos here, there is creasing and movement in the paper as is expected. This adds to the organic appeal of this hand produced edition. There is a professional tape repair to the paper but this does not detract from the enjoyment of this print.

Stig Sixten Sellén, born January 2, 1924 in Stockholm, was a Swedish painter, print maker and sculptor.
Sellén began painting in 1946 and studied at the Fetcós painting school in Stockholm from 1950 to 1952 and during several study trips to Paris and Denmark. He started sculpting in 1952. His art initially was figurative, still life and landscape works, but he gradually changed to painting non-figurative compositions. He sculpted in concrete, wood, metal and plastic.
Examples of Sellén’s work are held in public collections including Norrköping Art Museum, Swedish Embassy in Hanoi, and the art collections of the Stockholm County Council collection, Solna Municipality and Östergötland County Council.
Sellén passed away in Stockholm aged 77 on August 15, 2001.
