Also this year we continue the tradition of having an artist featuring the report. The 2017 report is designed by the street artist Jonathan “Ollio” Josefsson.
About the Artist
Although Jonathan Josefsson started his artistic career as a street artist, calling him a grafﬁti artist is like saying da Vinci was skilled at drawing helicopters! Grafﬁti is just the tip of Jonathan’s creative iceberg; he is accomplished in so many other areas.
Jonathan studied textile design at the Academy of Design and Crafts, Gothenburg, Sweden, and became adept at hand-tufted rugs, adding yet another technique to his palette of artistic expression: spray, paint, laser cutting, drawing and print.
Jonathan has a very personal style; an organic, pulsating microbe world, easily recognizable in the often same, same but not so differ-ent world of street art.
He has managed to lift his anarchistic art form from the edgy world of the street into the established art forum, without losing his integrity or playfulness.
He is represented in museums and private collections in Sweden and the rest of the world.
