Olle Borg, a Swedish painter, received his education at Åke Pernby's painting school from 1982 to 1983 and then continued at the Royal Institute of Art (Konstakademin) from 1983 to 1988. The patterns in his paintings are based on complex number series and are built up in layers of color. His color palette is derived from Humbrol's range of colors. Humbrol is renowned for manufacturing paints for scale models, often associated with military equipment. These colors are a type of ready-made hues intended to represent real colors on the objects that the models imitate.

Borg works with a form of materialized pictorial space, featuring large, glossy surfaces where the paint has sunk in, creating a suggestive darkness. Initially, the color palette is quite distinct, but over the long process of creating his paintings, it gradually becomes fluid, bordering on the chameleon-like. His artistic approach thus combines mathematical rigor with an exploration of color's transformative potential within the context of structured surfaces.
