Family Gallery - Water, sky and me

Feb 28, 2020 to Jul 11, 2021

About Water, sky and me

Water, sky and me was developed and designed in collaboration with Swedish illustrator and author Stina Wirsén, and features original illustrations and artwork by the artist created especially for you and ASI. Stina is known for a range of popular children’s books, including the Brokiga and Vem series. She commented, "I have kept quite a few of my earliest efforts, and in my recent work I see a return to my childhood sketches."

Ever since graduation from the Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in 1992, Stina Wirsén has worked as a professional illustrator. Today, she is one Sweden’s best-known illustrators and has written and illustrated many children's books and animations. She has also illustrated for various fashion brands, department stores, newspaper and magazines, restaurants and commercial advertising campaigns. Stina has been granted many awards like the Expressen’s Heffaklump Award for children’s literature; the Elsa Beskow Plaque; Nordiska Tecknare’s Award; Svenska Tecknare’s Kolla! Award; and was nominated for the August Award in 2005.

Beginning May 20, the Family Gallery will be open to the public from 3:30-8 p.m. on Thursdays with no reservations needed and included in museum admission.
