About Jim Thorell
Jim’s warped motifs conjure the uncanniness of dreams.
“There are always images straining to get on to the surface presented.”
Living and working in Stockholm, Jim’s work evokes the visual language reminiscent of underground comics and political satire cartoons, while being animated by his own preternatural style of drawing. The repetitive flow of mark-making in his works suggest the automatic gesture of graffiti writing while simultaneously glorifying cartoonist heroes, from Lars Hillersberg to Vaugn Bode. There are always images straining to get on to the surface presented.
