Originally from Stockholm, Sweden, Jonas moved to the Gold Coast, Australia to combine his art and industrial design studies with sunshine and surf. A few years on his love of surf and design led him to work for Billabong, where he worked as a product designer. Jonas draws from a myriad of references including the ocean, nature, surfing, his favourite tv series and Swedish and Australian culture. With a penchant for simple clean lines, he creates images with a playful naivety. He loves drawing animals, having fun and is inspired by adventure and the outdoors.
His traditional hand drawn illustrations are digitally coloured, resulting in a bold and expressive style. With this essence of vibrancy, Jonas’s freewheeling and unconventional take on everyday milieu has become his distinctive trademark.
