Jonas Bergstrand è nato a Stoccolma nel 1972. Si è diplomato alla Forsbergs School of Design nel 1997. Nel 2000 entra a far parte della prestigiosa agenzia londinese di illustratori CIA (Central Illustration Agency) dando una svolta internazionale alla sua carriera. Invece di risolvere parole crociate o sudoku, nel tempo libero Jonas ama disegnare caricature di attori famosi e automobili (come si può facilmente notare dagli artwork scelti per il BUM), anche se nella vita reale questi due aspetti gli interessano davvero poco. Ogni volto ha il proprio ritmo e trovarlo, per Jonas, è un lavoro investigativo molto interessante.

Jonas Bergstrand was born in 1972 in Stockholm. He studied at Forsbergs School of design and graduated in 1997. He joined the acclaimed London based illustration agency CIA (Central Illustration Agency) in 2000 and the career turned international. Instead of solving a crossword or a sudoku he draws caricatures of film actors when I have time on my own. Computer games fail to interest him. A movie along with pen and paper is relaxing good fun for him. Every face has it’s own rhythm and finding that is in his mind interesting detective work. I like to draw cars too (which is pretty evident in the BUM exhibition) but just as with famous actors he has very little interest in them in real life.
