The Multidisciplinary Art of Martin Bergström

Swedish fashion designer, stylist, set-designer and illustrator, Martin Bergström is a multidisciplinary artist that has applied his imagination to hotel interiors, furniture, print, theater, uniforms, stage clothing, illustrations, styling and commercial work, but it is the clothes which are at the center of his creative life. Bergström regards the collections as a kind of exhibition, the garments themselves being his ‘paintings’ and the textiles his ‘paint’. In this manner he has managed to find a place in an industry which he is critical of, questioning the throw-away culture of modern fast fashion and resisting it through centuries-old construction techniques.

It also looks like Bergström has an obsession with vegetation since almost all the images I was able to pull from his portfolio were related to fruits, vegetables and plants.
