Erik Jeor was born 1974 and lives in Stockholm. He holds an MFA from the Royal Institute of Art. His work has been shown at Moderna Museet, Bonniers Konsthall, Göteborgs Konstmuseum, Malmö Konstmuseum, Södertälje konsthall, Eskilstuna Konstmuseum, Länsmuseet Västernorrland, Art Cologne in Köln, Allegra LaViola Gallery in New York, Gallery B15 in Copenhagen, Angelika Knäpper Gallery and Lars Bohman Gallery. Jeor is represented in collections of Moderna Museet, Malmö Konstmuseum, Sundsvalls Museum, Sveriges Radio and has completed a public art work for Karolinska Institutet. Parallel to accomplishments as a visual artist, Jeor also has a career as a musician. His fourth full-length album is released at Kning Disk this spring. Critics have pointed to the ambient qualities in his music. These words may also describe Jeor’s watercolours, in which he seeks to capture the floating and changeable.
Jeor’s latest work is appropriately called ”Icône”. They can be seen as informal religious icons originally related to Christian history, iconography but as well linked to contemporary artists.
