In addition to its simplicity, something that characterizes - it is his freestyle
He paints only when he feels like to do so, unlike several artists who feel the pressure of producing a large number of pieces in a short time.
Björn is at his pace and calmly, which is undoubtedly reflected and transmitted in each one of his works.
I was traveling by train in the south of Russia in the summer of 2000. The train went very slow and along the train, poorly dressed people were walking. I asked my fellow passengers, who were these people and why were they walking along the railway. I was told, that it was very poor people and they were walking to someone's "Dasha" - a summer residence to pick fruit and then sell on the market.
As they had a bucket in each hand, my next question was; what are they picking and how much do they get when they (hopefully) sell it. Again I was told that they were normally picking prunes at this time of the year and that one bucket normally sold for $1.00...They walked two hours in one direction, picked the fruit, and walked back... At the same time, one liter (1 quart) water cost roughly the same at the market
