Kent Ullberg was born in a small fishing village on Sweden's North Coast. While studying art at the Konstfac School of Art in Stockholm, he enrolled in a sculpture class and knew immediately that this would be his life's work. He has exhibited in many parts of the world, including the National Museum of Natural History in Stockholm, Salon d'Automne in Paris, National Gallery in Botwswana, Exhibition Hall in Beijing, Guildhall in London, and National Geographic Society in Washington, D.C. He is especially known for his monumental sculptures dedicated to the preservation and appreciate of wildlife. In 1996, he received the prestigious Rungius Medal from the National Museum of Wildlife Art. In 1993 and again in 2008, he received the Henry Hering Award from the National Sculpture Society.
