About the Artist
Viveka Gren is a Swedish couture designer and artist who is best known for her passion of merging a sustainable mindset with wearable art, creating extraordinary pieces to wear and treasure.
I have for as long as I remember had a strong creative passion, but for a long time my life were simply too busy so the creativity was pushed aside. In 2018, on July 2nd, I made the decision to embark on a new and life long journey by launching HALO by Viveka Gren as a mean to express my creative and artistic visions without restrictions.
My art stems from an organic process. Rather than sketching, I tend to start off with a vauge idea and let the materials speak to me, painting a picture in my mind as the piece takes shape. In all of my couture pieces you will find hidden details, waiting to be discovered.
Everything you see on this site, including the site itself, is created by me. This artistic universe truly is the world of one single woman.
Thank you for joining me on this adventure. Being an independent artist is often lonely, but thanks to all of your support and cheers, life has truly become more vibrant and filled with joy.
I live with my two children in the city of Gothenburg, Sweden, and work from my home studio (and to be honest, just as often from the kitchen island which doubles as a creative workspace. I like having coffee and music close at hands.)
