Bjorn Lie designs this year’s Open Studios flyer

JSA FLYER A5 front flat 300

This year’s Open Studios flyer has been designed by illustrator Bjorn Lie. Each year a different studio holder takes on this task, each year producing something new and unique.
Bjorn has had a studio at JSA since 2006. His distinctive and playful approach to line and character make his work both ever-evolving and instantly recognisable. Bjorn’s drawings, paintings and prints are inhabited by a cast of bizarre and outlandish characters of extreme proportions.
Bjorn’s work can be found on beer bottles, tee-shirts, book jackets, restaurant menus and news papers across the globe. He has also written and illustrated three children’s books.
