Over the past 15 years, his collages have been presented in various formats including digital prints (from framed images to fourteen-foot tall images), 16mm animated films, outdoor murals, stencils, silk screens, posters, and gallery installations.

His art work has been included in the museum shows “Becoming Animal” at the MASS MoCA (North Adams, Massachusetts), The Idea of the Animal at the RMIT Gallery in association with the Melbourne International Arts Festival (Melbourne, Australia), and the Maltwood Art Museum (Victoria, BC) and is part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Milwaukee Art Museum and the Center for the Study of Political Graphics (Los Angeles.)

6. Jörgen Ringstrand

Jörgen Ringstrand began his career while studying at the University of Lund Sweden, where he not only worked as an assistant art director at Liberg Design, but also founded and acted as the creative director of Fotografi, a monthly art and photography publication. Upon graduation, Jorgen was quickly hired as an art director at Liberg. However, after moving to Stockholm, he evolved to creative director and has since worked with clients such as Levi’s, Peak Performance, H&M, J Lindeberg, NK Stil, HOPE and recently Gant.

Throughout Jorgen’s career as a creative director, he has also perused his passion for photography and film. Jorgen’s work has been featured in campaigns for H&M, J Lindeberg, Peak Performance, NK Stil and HOPE. His ability to see through the eyes of both a photographer and a creative director gives him the unique talent to coordinate the image and the typography with the concept. As Jorgen has said “ I work with a total concept, not just a picture. I give form to a message.”
