Joakim Allgulander, born 1965 in Stockholm, lives and works in London. Allgulander studied at the National College of the Arts and Crafts in Stockholm.
Joakim Allgulander creates work that evokes both emotion and curiosity. His art is characterized by a conceptual base, combined with the skill and craft and a love of the practical process. He demonstrates a curiosity and a desire to explore different media and techniques. The works of Allgulander often have an existential content and a dynamic play with contrasts; everything from natural and artificial, new and old, to more archetypical opposites such as light and darkness, and life and death.

The solo show “Intruders”, which is the first at Galleri Agardh & Tornvall, is the first ever with only paintings exhibited. The exhibition includes paintings with images from everyday life, but pitched in colour and composition that creates an existential drama and intrigues the viewer.
