Staffan Hallström (1914-1976) Sweden

Staffan Hallström was a Swedish painter and draftsman. Hallström studied at the University College of Arts, Crafts & Design in Stockholm, which was known as Tekniska Skolan at that time, as well as the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm, headed by Olle Hjortzberg and Isaac Grünewald. He also traveled to study abroad, including to France, Italy, the Netherlands and Belgium.

Hallström was a member of the Saltsjö-Duvnäs Group known for its clear flowing expression of color, or Neo-Expressionism, while distancing themselves from the national romantic school.

Hallström helped to decorate the Stockholm underground with the work “Ta ned Solen i Tunnelbanan” in collaboration with Lasse Andréasson Masmos.

Hallström’s work is represented at spaces such as Moderna Museet and Nationalmuseum. He is also a recipient of the Carl Larsson scholarship.
