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.
TRANSITIONDid I get a better life after that? (see I'm leaving) No, I did not. Matter of fact it got worse. I became financially broke*. But I had taken a decision and I lived with that. Finally, I gathered enough funds so I could get out of the depressing Elroy area. I moved to the friendly and warm San Antonio in Texas.
*That I got broke had nothing to do with the divorce. We separated more or less as friends. What broke me was that I tried to help the community where I lived and communities around to get more tourists. I organized a motorcycle event. I don’t ride my self but I can create and I had a vision. So I made a website, brochures, maps, planned rides, etc. The locals told me I should be happy if it came 50 people for a first-time event. The first time, in 2007 came 550 bikers from four states. Cycle World the largest motorcycle magazine on the planet wrote 1/1 page editorial text on how well run the event had been and the beautiful ride I had organized. Second-year it came tornado, flooding, etc. Everything bad which could happen happened. We also had a bike raffle. I could of course paid back the money to the people buying tickets due to the weather disaster. But I was thinking that in the long run, the money will eventually come back. Besides, I walk my talk! Long story short, after three years the city of Elroy didn’t want my help anymore. They did prefer to go back to the bake & garage sales – turning around the same money all the time. The idea with The Elroy Bike Meet “A Rural Hill & Valley Experience” was to attract very much-needed fresh money to the community. I became flat broke. Not even money for gas. I had food stamps. My landlord - I paid with paintings. That went on for two years. Finally, I gathered enough funds so I could get out of the depressing Elroy area. I moved to the friendly and warm San Antonio in Texas.The original was sold to Rochester, MinnesotaThe currency is USD.
