Swedish artist Camilla Hallgren creates poignant representations of social and political problems that plague the world by using miniature artistic props and figurines.

Her miniature art is wildly effective, covering topical themes of power relations, identity and feminism. Images that are especially striking touch on topical issues like the refugee crisis and public support of political leaders. The latter image shows a political leader teetering on the edge of a measuring ruler, while the supporters weighing down the other end are unaware that they hold his fate in their hands.

Hallgren is also a researcher and professor at UmeƄ University, where her research is continuously inspiring her art and her art is succinctly illustrating her work.
