MIKAEL KIHLMAN

The artist Mikael Kihlman is walking the cities of the world. You might catch him in Cracow, Poland, or in the streets of Montreal in Canada. In Belgrade or in Sophia. His curiosity and eagerness is constantly pushing him to still another city, as if there were not cities enough to experience in this short life of ours. In his art there are traces of time, life and death. The buildings bear vestiges of the human experience. And the light is present everywhere. It is not a judging light, nor spiritually ecstatic. It is a revealing light, a light of understanding and forgiveness, the love for life itself and the sadness of time passing.
