Fredrik Nielsen | Artist-in-Residence at The Studio

"I like to see it as, I know how to play, but I choose not to play the way that I learned." Fredrik Nielsen is a Swedish artist with a unique flair for experimentation, combining aspects of pop culture such as graffiti, music, videos, and performance into his glass art. His strong desire to push the boundaries of glass as a material have shaped his identity as an artist.
