His ink drawings from the 1960s–1980s are widely acclaimed, and many of them are collected in the book Around the Corner (Kalejdoskops förlag, 1986). Both Ystads konstmuseum, Sweden and Liljevalchs, Stockholm, Sweden, featured his exhibition Homo Sapiens in 1998. His solo shows Wolf at the Door and Serious Times were presented in the 2000s at Lunds konsthall, Sweden and Galleri Magnus Karlsson respectively. His works have also been featured regularly in other solo or group shows since the 1960s. He has also carried out commissions for public art.
