About the artist:

Sverre Bjertnæs (1976) was educated at the Norwegian National Academy of Fine Arts in Oslo, and further developed his studies at AKI Academy of Fine Art in Enschede in Holland. During recent years, he has been a rising star on Norway’s contemporary art scene, with a distinctive artistic identity.


He made his mark as a young figurative painter and drawer, and then moved on to develop a practise that also includes sculpture, installations and short movies. Bjertnæs’ paintings frequently display portraits, where a playful tone meets the image's complex relationships. These perspectives have in the latest years formed a unique language.

This event is in Norwegian.
