Biography

Lisa Jonasson (b. 1978) is educated at the Royal Institute of Arts in Stockholm (1999–2004). In conjunction with a student exhibition at Kulturhuset, Stockholm in 2003, her text-based posters were widely recognized. The works combined humor, community engagement, provocation and intriguing poetry. She received the Maria Bonnier Dahlin Foundation’s Artist Award and arranged a biennial in her own name, The Lisa Jonasson Biennial, at various locations in Stockholm, Sweden. The linguistic aspect of Lisa Jonasson’s work has remained, but the written word has developed into comic strips and later to wordless paper collages.
