27—28 April

Christian Berg Gravningen

Address: Grenseveien 91, 0663 Oslo
The studio is open Saturday 27 April from 12-17

Among the younger generation of artists, Christian Berg Gravningen has received much deserved attention. In his expressive, but poetic, paintings, he shows images from his immediate surroundings, experiences and memories. It can be flower bouquets, apartment buildings, winter landscapes, portraits or images from film and photos. Everything done in a free and unpretentious way with an observant presence. They can be melancholy, but often with humor and done in a way that feels liberating. Especially in contrast to the last decades of conceptual and theory-heavy projects.

Previous solo exhibitions include Skiens Art Association in 2023, Indre Østfold Art Association and Bærum Kunsthall in 2021 as well as The Association of Visual Artists Oslo. Gravningen has participated in a number of group exhibitions such as Still life # 2 at QB Gallery, Aulie Nå and Borgen Museum. Gravningens work has also been seen at Kösk, LNM, and at Østlandsutstillingen.
