Sverre Wyller

Sverre Wyller (b. 1953) lives and works in Oslo, Norway. Wyller received his artistic education from the Art Academies in Oslo and Berlin, and he primarily works with painting and sculpture, often on a monumental scale. Wyller's sculptures show his virtuousity in the handling of found and used materials, and he has created several public artworks which are characterized by their abstract and organic expression.
