Born 1987 raised in Kristinehamn, Sweden.

 

Lives and works in Gothenburg, Sweden.

 

Image production has always been natural and important to me. It has always been taken place between the times when you're playing around in the backyard as a kid, or when you're out drinking beer with your friends. Today I mostly work with painting, drawing, fanzine making and photography.

 

I try to soak up influences without any boundaries or unnecessary rules. At the moment I'm working from material of my familiar sphere.

Where friends, music, escapades, the route to school, landscape or daily image feeds are all included. When I work everything is permitted, and nothing should be sacred.

 

The pictures are often romantic and leverage. They also become a way of giving back to someone or something that inspired me.
