Audun is a Norwegian born artist, currently moved from New York to Montreal.
He holds an MFA degree from School of Visual Arts in New York City where he graduated in 2017. Following graduation, he has had two artist-in-residence programs at Mana Contemporary in Jersey City. He is represented by galleries in both United States and Norway and has had his work shown in international art fairs and solo shows.
His current body of work, “HEARTLAND” plays with elements of fashion design — ornate garments, lush spaces, bold colors — to create abstract arrangements that explore issues of feeling trapped inside the facades we construct around our identities. The paintings hint at narratives about the human condition, where the opposites hope and regret are central themes.
Next exhibition at Galleri Ramfjord: October 23 – October 31, 2021
