Bertil Herlov-Svensson (1929 -2012) was a self-taught Swedish artist who worked mainly as a sculptor. He was best known for his works using thin aluminum tubes stretched between steel wires. At the age of 35, Bertil Herlov-Svensson gained widespread recognition when he exhibited at the Multikonst exhibition. His artworks during this period, from about 1966 to about 1977, were inspired by mathematics and resulted in intricate sculptures such as “Construction”.
