Capturing moments that will last a lifetime

This is My life


Kelvin came as an "enfant terrible" from Copenhagen's experimental climate to a somewhat quieter southern country in the 1960s.

His art oscillates between deep existential seriousness and absorbed humor, and no one in his region has created so much debate about art. Kelvin believes that art is a tool in which curiosity playfulness and openness are indispensable phenomena to cope with the various challenges of the time.


Kelvin is a much appreciated lecturer, insightful educator and a creative consultant in color, form and space.


Based on the headquarter in Sörmland, where the soul is larger than the world, Kelvin creates his art based on the meeting of the present and its conditions, constantly in search of expanding the boundaries and finding peace in the perfect balance.

After all his years working in Sweden and the Nordic countries including the Little Faroe Islands, Kelvin Sommer's art has reached "over there" and is now represented both in the USA and Australia.
