Christian-Pontus Andersson became known for his monumental porcelain sculptures generally representing human figures.
He was born in 1977, studied in college and working in Gustavsberg outside Stockholm. Andersson hesitated between studying plastic surgery or becoming an artist. The work of Christian Pontus Andersson balances between kitch and stringent form, creating a contrast between the extravagant homoerotic appearances of the figures and the fragile material of which they are made.
Christian presents a dreamlike world where the characters come together, traveling or appear to seek comfort on each other. Each work has their own characteristics and specific relationships with each other, but they live out their lives in limited freedoom; constrained, conditioned and manipulated by their sovereign ruler.

Old-fashioned discourses have until quite recently upheld the classification of works in porcelain as craft. Christian-Pontus Andersson’s use of porcelain as the material for his outstanding sculptural works creates new dynamic perspectives on sculpture, craft works and the use of porcelain as an artistic medium.
He have been exhibiting his creations worlwide. He has exhibited at the National museum in Stockholm and has participated in group exhibitions in Tokyo, München and Milan.
