ART’S FUN! – visual mischiefs by Lasse Åberg

18 juni–25 september 2022
Fritt inträde

This summer we have the pleasure of exhibiting the all-round artist Lasse Åberg’s drawings and graphic production. Lasse Åberg, born in 1940 in Hofors, is a legend in Swedish entertainment and the creator of hugely popular films such as Repmånad (1979) and Sällskapsresan (1980) and the pop group Electric Banana Band. As an artist, he is best known for his pastiches on Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck, which are printed on, among other things, beer glasses, porcelain, trays and posters. Many are the Swedish homes that have at least one »Lasse Åberg glass« in the kitchen cabinets – something of a standard gift at birthdays and graduations during the 1990s. Åberg is also the artist behind the classic chair fabric on Stockholm’s subways and commuter trains (SL), which is now preserved among the collections at the National Museum.

During his long career, he has been awarded a number of prizes and awards, such as Guldbaggen for best male actor (film), Grammis for best children’s album of the year (music), Guldägget for his illustrations for Wasabröd (commercial) and H.M. The King’s Medal of the 8th size.
