Fredrik Nielsen is described as a rebel with a critical approach to glass art. Inspired by popular culture he includes graffiti, music, video and performance in his work. His sculptures have a raw and unfinished expression much different from the aesthetics found in European glassmaker traditions.
Fredrik Nielsen lives and works in Stockholm. He has studied at Orrefors Glass School, Pilchuck Glass School and the Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm. Nielsens work can be found in the collection of the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm (2010).
