|THE LEGEND OF THE GIGANTS
Olle JonssonSculptor and painter
It would take more than 40 years for Olle Jonsson
to fully develop his artistic potential. He was born
and raised in the Swedish province of Hälsingland,
a region of forests, mountains and valleys where
most people made their living from small-scale
farming and forestry.
From an early age, Olle understood that he, too, was
expected to follow this path. So he did, becoming a
farmer at the age of 25. After turning 40, however,
he felt the need to look for new challenges, for a
new direction in life.
He decided to study art.
