Klas is a mischief-maker

“A society without culture would be completely empty and extremely poor.”

Klas was still a kid when he started going to football games and hanging out at the grandstand. He was instantly fascinated with the loyalty, the unity, the anarchy, the humour, the hatred, the chanting and the antagonism. Growing up in a subculture has been a big influence on his work, defining his interest in image, color and shape. Landscapes are made from smoke bombs and his work often borrows from popular culture. For Klas, being an artist means the wages are low but the quality of life is high.
