The Swede Per-Olof Olsson, born in 1949, is a true autodidact naive artist. He has been a full time professional artist for more than 20 years.

His motives are characterized by people in different well-known surroundings such as the little Swedish town of the 1960s with small local pastries and flower shops or people enjoying a holiday in a Swedish coastal resort. Being part of a family of several generations of pastry chefs, cakes in all forms are important ingredients in his paintings. As a former tenor choir singer, music is essential to his motifs. He has a positive attitude to life and you can clearly see that in his paintings.

Per-Olof works with oil on canvas, gouache, lithographs and sculptures. Besides numerous exhibitions to galleries and companies all over Sweden, he has also exhibited his paintings abroad, for example in the Spain, France, U.S.A., Germany, Denmark, Israel and Finland.

Per-Olof has his studio in Helsingborg, Sweden, right in the fancy harbor area. Meeting people who stroll along the water front gives energy and inspirations to new ideas and paintings.
