Björn Sjögren, a Swedish artist residing in the U.S. since November 2001, and in Texas since 2011.
Even back in his home country of Sweden, some were comparing his painting style with that of Picasso, Matisse, Van Gogh and other masters. Today Björn Sjögren is experiencing the same comparisons by viewers and purchasers in the United States. And like many of history’s masters, Björn is entirely self-taught.
"The Swedish Painter" is Björn’s autobiography. It is an inspirational book for all ages about life, work, challenges and adventures, including Björn’s 10-year stint as a new arrival to the U.S. in rural Wisconsin before moving to San Antonio last year.
