Born and worked in the Lake Mälaren Islands Nordberg studied at the Swedish Royal Academy from 1920 to 1925. He travelled widely and was particularly impressed by the folk art in the Slavic countries. He was known for the humour and naivity of his figurative works and was called the Chagall of the Malar Islands. His imagination and ingenuity transformed the everyday subjects he favoured into comic burlesques, infused with something of a fairy tale aura that lightened the otherwise humdrum scenes of real life in post war Sweden. Nordberg's studio still exists on Munsö and is now a museum.
