Kingletter I – IV 1997-2016

Kingletters I-IV are works consisting of painted letters to king Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden (some of them sent as copies to His Majesty). Each work has taken months to years to complete, adding colors around every handtexted letter/word.

The latest work, Kingletter IV, started May 2016. It involves the Swedish children´s song “Kungens lilla piga” (the King´s little maiden) and also suggests to His Majesty that he is welcome to send me his thoughts on my translation of the song lyrics.
