Öyvind Fahlström

(born São Paolo, Brazil, 1928; died Stockholm, Sweden, 1976) Swedish painter and author whose comic-strip style of painting made him an important figure in the Pop art movement of the 1960s. For the performance series 9 Evenings: Theater and Engineering (1966), sponsored by Experiments in Art and Technology, Fahlström created a "total theater" piece titled Kisses Sweeter than Wine that combined film, sound, and music into one multimedia event.
