NCAD MFA graduate shows in Dublin

Sven Sandberg at Berlin Opticians Gallery

Dublin's Berlin Opticians Gallery is hosting the first solo exhibition by the California-born painter and NCAD graduate Sven Sandberg.

Six Portraits - the title of the show - takes as its starting point the artist’s own experiences of travelling around Europe as well as the diaries and photographs of early twentieth century travellers. More details and images of Sven's paintings can be found on the Berlin Opticians Gallery website.

Sven received his MFA from NCAD in 2016. He has participated in group shows in the United States and Ireland, including the 2016 RDS Visual Art Awards exhibition, where he was joint recipient of the R.C. Lewis-Crosby Award. He received one of the Arts Council's Next Generation Artists Awards in 2018. His paintings are in public and private collections in the United States and Ireland. Sven Sandberg currently lives and works in the west of Ireland.
