About me


Jan-Thomas Ölund I am a visual artist born in Örnsköldsvik now living in Holmsund outside Umeå Sweden. My medium is oil, acrylic and video. The inspiration comes from various sources at present Japanese aesthetics "wabi" which strives for simplicity, austerity and the beauty of nature and things. In the latest paintings, which span a ten-year period, there is a simplicity that rests in an abstract minimalist tradition.
