About the artist
Per Svanström
Per Svanström is a self-taught pencil artist from Skövde, Sweden, currently living in Stockholm. With over a decade of experience creating artworks his highly-realistic pencil portraits has become his signature style.
Per is somewhat a hobbyist when it comes to his artwork in the sense that it is not his only way of making a living. However, between his day job and other daily routines he gives himself time to keep working on his drawing techniques and exploring new ways of creating art.

In the summer of 2016 Per started selling Art Prints of some of his drawings. He has his own web shop SvanstromPrints and you can also find his work on sites such as  NordicDesignCollective  and Prints.se .

The result of Per’s artwork from the last 15 years can be found on this website. Per is also very active on social media where he shows his audience how he creates his art. Follow him on Instagram or Facebook to find out more.

Some of the pieces included in Per’s gallery are for sale. If you fancy any drawing, please send him an email and he will respond with details shortly. If you would like to commission him for a portrait please go to the Commission page.
