PRESS RELEASE

Gallery70 has the pleasure to present the side by side exhibition “Maxi Cosi” by Johan Gustavsson and Jonas Ohlsson, two Swedish artists based in The Netherlands.

The exhibition will take place in the format ONLINE EXCLUSIVE on our gallery virtual space at ARTSY 

Gustavsson & Ohlsson

Originally from Sweden, they have both been living in The Netherlands for the last twenty years. Next to their artistic practices they are both curating exhibitions and lecturing at various Art Academies. Gustavsson & Ohlsson are both inspired by amateur, outsider and children’s drawings and their often unique display of rawness, care and honesty.
They also share a deep love and passion for the medium of drawing, an ancient medium that allows space for intuition, imperfections and directness of thought.

Everything from daily mundane occurrences to larger sweeping political issues are all addressed with a gentle tenderness, celebrating the strangeness and awkwardness of everyday life.

Jonas Ohlsson (b.1967) is an artist, and maker of drawings, installations and objects. He is a composer of music, and writes and performs as Blodfet & DJ Lonely. His art is as versatile as his artistic practice. Next to music, provocation and humor other important themes in his work are sex, drugs, politics and street culture. Ohlsson's background in electronic music penetrates his artistic process, where a big part is reserved for intuition and free association.

Jonas also teaches at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, The Royal Academy in The Hague, and Design Academy in Eindhoven. He has also been a guest teacher in Boston, Berlin, Los Angeles, Örebro, Aruba, JIngdezhen, Xiamen (both in China)and Geneva.
