Who is Lasse Åberg?

Lars Gunnar Åberg is a Swedish actor, musician, film director and artist. Between 1960–64 he studied at the Konstfack department of graphic design.

Åberg has produced some of the most successful films in Sweden, depicting "typical" Swedish life and customs in a usually humorous way. Åbergs character can be described as an inept outsider with a large heart, constantly pushed aside without noticing.

His films have generated over 300 million Swedish kronor in Sweden alone; no large scale international distribution has ever been attempted. His 1980 film Sällskapsresan was entered into the 12th Moscow International Film Festival.

As an artist, he is famous for making various lithographs; one of his stocks in trade are sketchy Mickey Mouse drawings. He is a member of Svenska Serieakademien. He also re-designed the seat textiles for the Stockholm Metro subway in the 1990s.

As a musician, he played in the nationally successful band Electric Banana Band. Åberg is also the creator of Trazan & Banarne, one of the most beloved Swedish kids shows ever. It was shown on Sveriges Television in the late 70s/early 80s.
