Jakob Ojanen wrote the foreword to his brother Joakim Ojanen’sNext to Daisy’s, on top of the laundry‘, published by LL’Editions in 2022.

Jakob Ojanen was born in 1980 in Västerås and is a Swedish artist engaged in various artistic disciplines, including painting, photography, sculpture, and installations. Operating from his studio in Bagarmossen, a suburb of Stockholm, Ojanen channels his creativity to create art that combines photography and painting based on abstract forms found in our surroundings. Drawing inspiration from commonplace objects, he places them in unconventional scenarios, thereby exploring themes of accessibility, social awareness, citizenship, and the boundaries of permissibility in the public sphere. Ojanen imparts a personal touch to his images, blurring the line between photography and painting with meticulous precision. It is sometimes challenging to discern where he has added color and what is part of the original image. Recurring motifs in his artworks include grids, bricks, and faded graffiti—a form typically associated with vandalism. Here, it emerges in its democratic function, interpreted through abstract painting.

Prior to completing his Master of Fine Arts degree at Konstfack in Stockholm in 2008, Jakob Ojanen spent preparatory years at Västerås Konsthögskola. Concurrently, he continued teaching drawing, witnessing the rapid development of many talented artists, an experience he found incredibly inspiring for his own creativity. He has been awarded numerous significant scholarships, including the Bærtling Scholarship, and his works have been exhibited at prominent venues such as KAZ Galleri in Västerås, Galleri Thomassen in Gothenburg, and SPG Galleri in Stockholm. Jakob Ojanen is also represented by Stene Projects, a commercial art gallery specializing in contemporary art and ideas.
