Jörgen Birger Roland Fogelquist was born on June 7, 1927 in Mariestad in Skaraborg, died on February 27, 2005 in Skåne. He was a Swedish artist. He grew up in Mariestad and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in 1945–1949, Académie Libre in Stockholm in 1950–1951 and the Academy of Fine Arts in 1951–1956. He is famous not only for his graphics, but also about fifty public decorations made of various materials. Through concrete art with alternating curves and rectilinear forms, Fogelquist moved towards abstract expressionism. His paintings are characterized by fast movements, surprising imagination and an intense play of colors. One of the most interesting of his monumental works is a mural in the machinery hall of the then Svenska Tobaks AB in Malmö.
