Playful and imaginative, Agnetha’s exquisitely hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind sculptures are sought after by art lovers and animal lovers alike. While the shape, stance and attitude of her dogs brings them to life, Agnetha uses their surfaces to tell vibrant stories, each one unique to its canine canvas. She is inspired by her love of art, and cites Giacometti, Grayson Perry, Jeff Koons and Andy Warhol among her influences. She is a passionate follower of comic book illustrators of the 20th century, particularly Tintin’s famous creator, Hergé.
Born in Sweden and now based in London, Agnetha enjoyed a successful career in design consultancy, working as an interior designer and going on to found her own cutting-edge design agency. This multi-disciplinary background gave her a strong grounding in both art and design, and put quality and sustainability at the heart of her creative thinking. Each of her dazzling handmade dogs – part Labrador, part Dalmatian, part cartoon – is authenticated with its personalised COA and story contained within a signed ‘mini passport’.
Agnetha’s distinctive sculptures have been featured in high-end magazines: Vogue, Home & Country, Elle and Design Week. They have enchanted audiences, making guest appearances at fashion shows in New York and Moscow, and exhibited in the Rosewood Hotel London, IFC in Hong Kong and the Qingdao Sculpture Museum in China among others.
Her sculptures have been named on the Aesthetica Wish List alongside pieces by Stella McCartney, Louis Vuitton and Elin Høyland. Agnetha’s art can be found in the collections of famous private collectors, including Angelina Jolie and Jude Law.
It is our pleasure, as the Daville Baillie Gallery, to offer our esteemed collectors and clients the first range of Agnetha Sjögren sculptures in the country. Our exhibited pieces will include her most recent sculptures in bronze, some in pop-inspired colours and others with comic book finishes.
