Andreas Gravdal (1981), born and raised in the rainy city of Bergen, Norway, resides and creates within his studio at Strandgaten 207. A self-taught artist, Andreas delves into the ordinary, the everyday, often overlooked elements devoid of perceived historical or aesthetic value. Through a raw and almost naive approach, he translates these nuances onto canvas. Within a single composition, multiple narratives unfold, revealed through various subtle details. Andreas incorporates letters and text in his paintings, whether to narrate a story or to embrace the inherent aesthetic value found in the written form.
