Eric Seth Lundberg was born January 8, 1918 in Uppsala. He was a Swedish painter, sculptor and print maker.
Lundberg was self-taught as an artist and conducted independent studies during trips to Norway and Denmark from 1953 to 1955. He had several solo exhibitions in Uppsala, and other Swedish cities including amongst others Örnsköldsvik, Sundsvall, Ludvika and Sala. Together with T Mörk-Ossians he exhibited in Eksjö in 1949 and alongside silversmith Ulf Trolle-Lindgren at Galerie Catharina in 1959. He was often referred to as a colourist with works somewhat in abstract form with expressionist overtones. He painted still lifes, portraits, figures, cityscapes, landscape and purely abstract paintings in oil, watercolour and gouache, created woodcut prints as well as smaller sculptures in plaster, stone and wood. His landscape works were often of Swedish mountain areas and coastal scenes from Gotland and Denmark
He is represented in museums and various institutions.
