About Johan Gaellman


Ttwo-and-three-dimensional works of art is often the outcome of my creative work. Drawing is close at hand. Drawing with pen, ink, charcoal (or maybe threads, fire, caviar...).


I arrange school art projects which I very much enjoy. It brings great inspiration to be a part of a creative process whatever age or background of the participants.


For several years me and my sister Carina had a puppet theatre. We havent been busy with the theatre for some time now, but often, when I am concluding a workshop with younger children, I present one of our puppet characters in a small surprise show.


I work part time at the Karlstads stadsbibliotek in Karlstad (the city library). The work includes arranging summer art courses for young teenagers and managing the Sommarbussen, which brings many kinds of cultural experiences available to all ages for free. (music, dancing, creative workshops, literature and much more),
