Kriland emerged in the 1940s with paintings that were heavily influenced by surrealist ideas after formative stays in Paris and London during the interwar period. During the 1940s, he joined the Skåne-based painting group imaginisterna. Later, he was active primarily as an illustrator of, among other things, around 50 books.
