Marsdal, Line

painting and digital graphic art

I work as an artist in Oslo full time. My works and projects are often about definitions of reality. About new perspectives and varieties of ways of perceiving, experiencing and take a stand. I get inspired by details and systems in urban environments, herd mentality, misfit human animals and the Law of Jante. By unwritten laws and invisible boundaries between art, design and manufacturing.
It’s about dipping your toes in reality…
