KLYS - Konstnärliga och Litterära Yrkesutövares Samarbetsnämnd
KLYS is the Swedish Joint Committee for Artistic and Literary Professionals, an umbrella organisation for collaboration between professional artists from all art disciplines in matters of common interest.
We were commissioned to create a graphic illustration for their main area of expertise - copyright. Our concept has been inspired by traditional folk art, such as textile wall hangings and decorative murals where scenes filled with symbolism illustrate the workers' conditions and environments. In this composition, copyright stands for the mechanisms that enable culture and art to be a dynamic place where a diversity of artistic perspectives, characters and themes can flourish, seek protection, be guided and nurture all that is alive.
