Atelier Kalle Hellzén

Melancholy dipped in sunshine.

Being selective with our emotions is a kind of mental self-defense—it helps protect us from the constant barrage of noise and distress in the world. Focus on what you can affect and turn to face your own private sun.

Available Works

I've often felt like an outsider looking in, trying to fit in, yet often feeling slightly misfit. This sentiment, this duality of being present yet distanced, saturates my art.

Frequently Asked Questions

All my artworks start with my own original oil and acrylic paintings, which I consider 'generation 0'. These paintings are complete works in their own right, but I see them as initial expressions, themes, palettes, compositions, and subjects that serve a higher purpose as springboards into my art process. (If interested, you can see some of them in more detail on my Instagram. Please note that they are not for sale.)

From here, I venture into a more complex phase, using generative AI to remix and regenerate these original works. I only use my works as input prompts, blending fragments, portions, or entire pieces and creatively intermingling them with each other and their digital offspring. This process forms a continuous development cycle in which each piece evolves from and contributes to the others.

In this step, I guide the AI by applying techniques like zooming, panning, and adding descriptive words to direct the artwork's trajectory. This iterative journey between the originals and the AI-generated versions is a path of discovery where I explore and select the emotionally resonating pieces.

I then upscale, edit, color correct, and refine my selections in Topaz and Photoshop. Finally, I use giclée printing techniques on archival fine art paper to birth the artwork into its physical form as a limited edition print. I sometimes work it further from here by hand-embellishments—adding textures, layers, and other elements. I enjoy experimenting with varnishes and Liquid Chrome, playing with contrasts between matte and gloss finishes. Additionally, I explore different mounting materials to complement these limited editions and hand-embellished uniques, such as paper texture versus the sharp edges of materials like Dibond and aluminum.

All my art is safely delivered globally with insured courier. Open and limited edition prints should be delivered within 5-10 days and perhaps a little longer if you are very far away. Hand-embellished uniques and sculptures could take longer depending on production time or if the work is currently being exhibited. Please email with any questions.

My fine art prints are designed to last, and are printed on archival fine art paper using processes that maintain the details of my work. You will not be disappointed, the print is breathtaking and holds the highest details that are contained in the image.

If a print gets damaged in transit I will replace it. We will ask for some images or video of the damage so we can supply this to the shipping service to cover the insurance.

My work is made to order, so I cannot accept returns. However if your print is damaged in transit, or in the very unlikely event that it arrives with a defect, we will replace it.

For our print customers in the US, EU, and UK – you will NOT incur any customs charges on Limited and Open Edition Prints. However, for other products like Timed Limited Editions, hand-embellished uniques, sculptures and for international customers, you might incur customs charges. You can view the thresholds by country.

All my artworks are delivered with a COA (Certificate of Authenticity) clearly outlining edition number and usage rights. Signature and edition number is applied in the printing process. Only hand-embellished artworks are signed by hand, unless otherwise stated.

Our 50% payment option allows you to pay half of the total cost upfront and the remaining half 30 days later. Your art will be shipped once the full payment has been completed. If you prefer to receive your art sooner, you can choose to pay the remainder early to expedite the shipping process.

My art thrives on bold contrasts—a colorblind artist's vibrant take on the world.
