Anneli Olander Berglund
Artist | Professional | Varied
Sweden
Swedish illustrator and artist Anneli Olander Berglund grew up in a small town, deep in the thickly forested, copper-rich Swedish province of Värmland — and later found happiness in the outskirts of poetic and coffee sipping urban jungle of Stockholm.

She has been freelancing since January 2007 when, at the age of 26, she started her own company A.Olander Illustration. Her favourite quote is “I didn’t make it because I was the best- I made it because I couldn’t afford to lose”.

Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including at :

Be Cool gallery, Italy (2008),

Corey Helford Gallery, USA (2008),

Solo show at Friends of Leon Gallery, Australia (2011)

Solo show at Hellion Gallery, USA (2012)

Group show at Giant Robot Gallery, USA (2017)

More recent ventures have seen her illustrations adorn everything from runways in Italy to iPhone apps, artisanal chocolates to the pages of ArtNews.

To name a few clients throughout the years:

Tiltworks, USA

Element Skateboards, USA

Beeproductions, SWEDEN

Pantagruel Publishing, NORWAY

Laika consulting, SWEDEN

A. O. Berglund’s illustrations combine a lush painterly sensibility with a darkly playful take on girlish fun and the remixing of fantasy with the everyday.

I think my art will have to sum up the years that has passed. I'm glad they are behind me in that sense I don't regret them but they were hard.

Morning Me by OhAnneli


I'm a do-er and even though at times I've had this feeling that my life isn't mine and I'm something of a Sims character it's been amazing in terms of life lessons. I've really had to check out my ego at the door and focus on the important things in life. Me returning here is just a sign things are getting better and I can squeeze in me-time again. 

These last few years I've written two books, I'm writing on two more, also working on 3 comics and still making art. Please note: I couldn't help writing and creating in this time but I didn't have time to find a publisher or editor or anything, I've just been creating stuff because I needed to.

With the lack of time and focus I'm amazed I've actually never stopped participating in art shows, most recent was this December 2017, the fun popart groupshow at Giant Robot Gallery in LA. It was an invitation only group show where the artists had to paint or draw on post-it's that were all sold at the same prize. Matt Groening, founder of the Simpsons, had a couple of pieces there as well as my pop realist painter friend Linnea Strid and a lot of my favourite artists were participating too. I sold something too, it was great. That kind of stuff humbles me a lot. I've had zero time on my hands to keep up networking and planning, but in the end lady luck sometimes smiles on me too :heart:

Oh time to fix some breakfast. I'll return. Not every second year like before :) Soon. How've you been?

Post it show art
In December 2017 I participated in the invitation only group art show at Giant Robot Gallery featuring artists like Matt Groening, you might know him from the Simpsons. It was an honored to be invited and I did sell something too.

:heart: I'd love some test readers on a comic I'm making. Any takers? I want someone 18+ years because there's violence and romance taking place. :heart:
