Liss Eriksson (31 August 1919–19 July 2000) was a Swedish sculptor.


The son of the sculptor Christian Eriksson (1858-1935), Liss Eriksson grew up on Maria Prästgårdsgatan on Södermalm in southern-central Stockholm. Following his studies at the College of Fine Arts for Nils Sjögren and Eric Grate in 1939-1944, Liss participated in the pioneering exhibition Ung Konst in 1947, before spending five years in Paris together with his wife, the artist Britta Reich-Eriksson, to study for Jean Osouf and Henri Laurens. He returned to Stockholm in 1951, in 1975 succeeding the studio of his father previously used by Sven 'X:et' Erixson (1899-1970). During his last years, he was working on a retable for the church Katarina kyrka, near his home.[1][2]
