My name is Jonas, I have lived on the Gold Coast of Australia for about 12 years now. I moved here to combine studying industrial design with surfing along with some friends. I split my time between art and running a company

Want to go to a place where road-tripping wolves hunt epic set-ups, all the moose rip and you can ride a friendly dinosaur to your favorite undiscovered right-hand slab? Step into the fantasy world of artist Jonas Claesson

Originally from Stockholm, Sweden, Jonas mixes strong references from his new home in Australia with his Scandinavian roots.

In his colorful drawings, moose, polar bears, reindeers, seals and surfers cohabitate in a wonderful world.

His traditional hand drawn illustrations are sometimes digitally colored, 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.


 

We were honored to have Jonas's first solo exhibition in Hawai'i "The Wolf and The Whale" in 2017.
