It is no exaggeration to say that Maja Sten is well educated. First, she studied art history, then she attended three of Sweden’s most reputable art schools before finally graduating from the Royal College of art in London in 2002. Maja makes both graphic works and etched metal jewellery.
Maja Sten on her piece for Wonderwall: “According to legend, Pandora was given a wonderful box while being told never to open it. However, curiosity got the better of her and she opened the lid enough to let all misery and disease fly out into the world. Pandora put the lid back on right before hope got out. At that point, it must have been the most wonderful box in the world, the box where hope lives. You’d never want to open it, what if hope disappeared!”
