Pontus Willfors challenges the way the viewer perceives everyday objects. He examines aspects of nature that are viewed by our society as product, nuisance or waste. Through mostly sculptural exercises he addresses the power of our culture and its ability to manipulate nature and shape its surroundings.

He has shown his work throughout the continental U.S. including Ben Maltz Gallery at Otis in Los Angeles, Irvine Fine Arts Center, Read Contemporary in Dallas and was part of the curatorial show at Art Miami in 2012. He is represented by Royale Projects in Palm Dessert, CA.

Pontus Willfors graduated from CalArts (Valencia, CA) in 2009 and has lived and worked in Los Angeles since 2005. He was born at an early age in Sweden in 1973.
