“I like when you can tell it’s been made with your own hands”
Ollio was among the first on the Gothenburg street art scene to reveal his identity, tagging his work with his name.
Color and pattern are among Ollio’s fascinations. Intertwining, interconnecting lines and shapes and the contrast of black lines with the shades in between: Ollio makes it all come together in his brilliant impressions, all created with his two hands. Since he’s easily bored by sameness, Ollio thrives on working with different materials: newsprint, paper, wood, canvas and textiles have all at some point been a platform for his artful designs. And walls, of course.
You can catch Ollio’s work at exhibitions all over Europe. Or, where and how it all began: enriching the streets of Gothenburg and giving life to its alleys.
