Skarstedt Gallery was founded in 1994 by Per Skarstedt to mount historical exhibitions of the Contemporary American and European artists that had become the core of his specialty as a private dealer and gallerist in Stockholm, Sweden and New York City in the late 1980's and early 1990's.
The philosophical approach of the gallery is based on the long-term nature of our client relationships. For the past twenty years, before the inception of the gallery, Mr. Skarstedt has been advising important collections worldwide. This has cultivated the necessary relationships with the collectors and artists in order to have significant influence on the secondary market.
Since the onset of the gallery, the artwork shown at Skarstedt Gallery has been a constant dialogue and criticism of popular culture of the late Twentieth Century. Though the work is diverse in its presentation and representation, there is a constant exploration of identity, originality, authorship, and media all of which make up the essence of postmodern thought and critical theory of our times.
