Swede Albert is an aspiring artist from the Okanogan valley, in Washington state. Having a well-known and talented artist as a father, it’s no wonder that Swede took kindly to the art world. Following his late father’s dream and gaining inspiration from growing up in a junk yard, he began creating works of art from recycled and salvaged materials. Using this method of creation, he started to make beautiful gems out of what would be waste and trash. Bringing a new and different tone of light to the global issue of waste and pollution is what continues to inspire him to create wonderful and astounding artworks out of salvaged materials.
