Biography from Butler Institute of American Art:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Jan Hafstrom- Born 1937 in Stockholm, Sweden. Lives in Stockholm, SE. Travels and memories have always been important to Håfström, and his works often incorporate strongly autobiographical features. In a recent series of paintings, following a powerful encounter with works by Gauguin and Matisse, and after witnessing a dramatic death shooting in St. Petersburg, Håfström is returning to two basic characters: The alter-ego of the Phantom, Mr Walker, remembered from his childhood, and Mr Kurtz in Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness. These works embrace a wide spectrum of fragments of memories and references. In addition to Walker and Conrad, we find traces of Russian icons, childhood pictures, objects and his own previous works, and in this way they could be said to summarize his entire oeuvre.
