I am a Norwegian artist who works in different media, - mostly with oil- and acrylic paintings. The motives I often get from music, lyrics and nature. You will often find people in motion in my works, although I like the meeting with life in all sentences. The human body fascinates me. I would mostly describe my motives as happy.
Since 1995 I’ve been a fulltime-painter. 2007-2009 I was a student at “Strykejernet artschool” in Oslo, and I have studied at “Christiania Free academy” in Oslo and “Studio Giambo” in Florence a.o. Today I have my own workshop in my hometown, “Atelier Astrup”.
I have been exhibiting in several places, both in Norway and abroad.
Some of my exhibitions:
Gallery Marziart, Hamburg, Germany, Gallery Quirinus, Sweden, 2013, Galleri Annekset, Stavern, Galleri OMK, Oslo, Upstream people gallery, USA, Telemarksutstillingen 2011, Art Oslo 2010, Sommerbiennalen 2010, Strømstad, Galleri Vera, Drøbak, Galleri Albin up, Oslo, Galleri Pingvin, Oslo, Galleri Athene, Drammen, Chelsea Gallery, N.Y., USA, Uncover exhibition, USA, Light Night exhibition, Iceland a.o.
I’m also arranging painting courses. Beside this I have illustrated several books.
