Björn Ekegren is a Swedish sculptor, glass artist and painter. Between 1970 and 1993 Björn Ekegren painted and produced primarily aquarelles and lithographies in a naturalistic, almost impressionistic style, where light and atmosphere were important in conveying the shifting seasons. After educating himself on glass molding techniques Ekegren turned to sculpturing. His primary medium is sand cast glass, but also bronze.
The sculptures bridge the disparate art glass traditions and influences to create a unique form of expression. Often they carry the shapes of faces and statues - meditative, sacral and worshipping of freedom.
Björn Ekegren lives in Höganäs, Skåne in Sweden where he also has his studio. His sculptures are primarily produced in his own studio and glassworks in Småland, a province in southern Sweden with a long heritage of creating art glass.
