Born 1965 in Stockholm. Moved to London to work and live in 2013. Another move to Italy in 2021. Educated at the National College of the Arts and Crafts, Stockholm and at Uppsala University/Visby. Today an international artist that exhibits all over the world.

Joakim Allgullander is one of Sweden's best known contemporary artists with art that arouses emotion and curiosity. His ability to capture human nature is reflected in the artwork.
- "Art is not only interesting and intellectually understandable, but also arouses curiosity, perhaps not a direct desire but at least a desire to reach the world in the picture, to be uncompromisingly captured by one's own imagination."

He is mentioned in the book The Joy of art: How to look at, appreciate, and talk about art by Carolyn Schlam. That together with giant artists like Gerhard Richter och Peter Doig. Doig whos artwork, Swamped, was sold for over 25 million dollars while Richter is one of the most important artist of our time whos price record is over 37 million dollars. Being mentioned along with these giants certainly paints a bright international future for the art of Joakim Allgulander.

Joakim Allgulander’s oeuvre is characterised by a conceptual base, combined with the skill of craft and a passion for the process of creating. His work demonstrates a curiosity and desire to explore different media and techniques. There is existential content and a dynamic play with contrasts throughout Allgulander’s work. 

There is a duality that reverberates through his works. In Allgulander´s work 'Before and After' two figures can be seen running and joyfully making their entrance into the water. At the bottom of the image field, their reflections turn into a blurry snapshot in sepia - A nostalgic memory fragment from a past picture of two cheerful boys? The reflection in the water invites the idea of the couple's lost childhood. A virtuoso's ingenuity explained in what seems at first seemingly simple.
