Jan Lööf – Image Maker – Göteborgs konstmuseum

Jan Lööf (b. 1940) is one of Sweden’s foremost draughtsmen and illustrators. His classic comics Felix and Ville have inspired a whole generation of cartoonists. But perhaps his children’s books are the foremost reason he is well-known to a broader audience.

Lööf has also contributed to the flora of Swedish children’s  TV-sows thanks to his role in the cult television series Tårtan (The Cake) and his own animated production Skrotnisse och hans vänner (Junk-Nisse and his Friends), which was a collaboration with Lars-Åke Kylén.

In the catalogue Jan Lööf –Image Maker the contributors sketch a background to Lööf’s visual work from a number of different angles. Together with the comprehensive – and to some extent previously unpublished – illustrations, the articles provide an in-depth view of an artistic production that is extremely vibrant, spiritual and open to new ideas.
