This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Olle Nordmark    (1890 -   )

Born in Mockfjards parish in Dalarna, Sweden, Olle Nordmark first studied art with his father, then with Gustav Ankarcrona, a carriage painter, and finally at the Altins Art School in Stockholm where he trained in fresco* painting. 

While painting murals and doing decorative* painting for private homes and churches in Sweden, Nordmark also studied theatrical painting and stage design in Moscow.  He returned to Stockholm to work on murals for private homes and set designs for theater and ballet companies. 

Immigrating to America in 1924 at age 34, he painted fresco murals for private commissions in New York and also did decorative work, which is in the American Swedish Historical Museum in Philadelphia. 

Nordmark had residences in at Hopewell Junction and Cold Spring, New York.  During the Depression from 1938 to 1943, he taught mural painting to various Native American artists under the government’s Bureau of Indian Affairs.  He also supervised frescoes for the Department of Justice at Lincoln Station in Washington DC, and at Hightstown, New Jersey. 

He wrote Modern Methods and Techniques for Painting in Fresco and Secco (1947).

Memberships included the Artists Equity Association and the Dutchess County Art Association.  In New York City, he had a solo exhibition at the Delphic Studio and a multi-artist exhibition at Three Arts Gallery.  His work was included in the Swedish Modern Exhibition at the Denver Museum of Fine Art.
