Torsten Molander has long been passionate about gorillas. He spent a lot of time in the Kolmårdens Zoo to observe and draw them. Study their daily lives and the interactions they have with each other. Massive and powerful bodies that show such an impressive lightness and harmony.
From these many drawings were born the sculptures of gorillas. Some of his statues represent gorillas in a very human attitude.

Many of Torsten Molander’s works are now located in several cities in Sweden: Örebro, Karlstad, Enköping, Västerås…
