"I need irony and humour to make works poetic."
Jan Stenmark was born February 11, 1949 in the industrial city Norrköping in eastern Sweden. Between the years 1975-1979 Jan Stenmark studied at the College of Arts in Stockholm, where he also lives and works now days. At first glance, his pictures can make people laugh, but often there is an underlying seriousness of his works. The texts under his images often provide a new, unexpected and absurd meaning of the artwork.
