The first time Kim Simonsson realised he was able to sculpt was years ago. He was just a little boy playing with the snow in his backyard. The other boys his age would roll snowmen but Kim sculpted a Donald duck. He had three dimensional vision at very early age.Read More
Besides sculpting snow, soccer and history are Kim's passions. The local soccer field turned into an art studio but tales and history live in his sculpting. The ancient material shapes into life size sculptures of animals and children in Kim Simonsson's hands. He combines the innocent with an odd agenda. Although the technique he uses is traditional, the way he gives the material a soul is unique.
'A strange, enchanted sadness runs through Mr. Simonsson's work, as though he were trying to connect to some abandoned magical place in his own psyche.'
–Ken Johnson on KIM SIMONSSON
