Art for People

Johan Paalzow

This website ”Art for People” is about making art for people in public space.
Over the years and through all the working hours I put in to my artwork the most rewarding are my sculptures in the public realm. As an artist meeting people in everyday situations, art consumers in the streets, squares, schools, parks, at work and with public transportation, this is my job and I love it.

Enjoy the pictures from different studios, workshops and industries, and how my sculptures interact when they are at work. For me thats what it’s all about, making art for public space. If you want more information, texts, artist statements, technical info, CV etc, contact me by mail.

To all you artlovers … enjoy!
