LG Lundberg

Malmö , Sweden

LG Lundberg was born in 1938 in Malmö. He lives and works in Stockholm and on Smådalarö in the Stockholm archipelago.

LG Lundberg’s practice is characterized by investigation of motifs that allow him to dwell on the subjects and expressions that catch his interest. He made his debut in the 1960s with painting that borrowed from mass media, advertising and popular culture; in the 1970s his focus turned to the concrete details of everyday life and his gaze became increasingly introspective. During this time he begun a series of paintings with repeated depictions of the hospital screen and its psychological charge. His next step involved an immersion into fences.

LG Lundberg’s work has been exhibited, at Ronneby Konsthall, Sweden (2015); Konsthallen Vargåkra gård, Hammenhög (2015); Bror Hjorths Hus, Uppsala (2014); Artipelag, Stockholm (2014); Kungliga Akademien, Stockholm (2013); Konsthallen Kulturens hus, Luleå (2010), among others. In 2004, LG Lundberg had a solo exhibition, Fences, at Magasin 3 Stockholm Konsthall.
