Stig is a Norwegian artist, who mainly do fine art in acrylic and oil, murals, creative photography and mixed media. He grew up in a tiny village in Bremanger on the west-coast of Norway, among steep mountains and deep fjords. All his ancestors were fishermen, sailors or farmers. There, he learned to love the beauty of nature. Rough and wild elements in nature have followed him since as a great inspiration. Stig did drawing from early childhood, his favorite motive was his father's fishing-boat dragging in tons of fish. The first real painting he sold, as a 12 year old boy, was of an arctic wolf howling against the moon. As a nature-lover,he also works with wood-sculpturing and photography has been his whole life passion. Stig has a huge archive of photos that inspire him to work with graphic expressions. Human relations has become extremely important for him during the last years, and people is a huge inspiration for his art.
Through his school-years, he chose to study as much art and craft as possible. Furthermore, he had in-depth studies in Art at the Artic University of Norway. However, most of his painting skills is self-thought. Stig has been painting for many decades, and his dream of being a full time artist was always alive. Family-obligations stopped him from going full time until 2014, when moving to South Africa. Stig has a teaching career that stretches over more than 30 years in various schools and organisations. He has also built up an Art Study at High-school level. Through the years Stig has had many solo and group exhibitions, both in Norway, Denmark and South Africa. His artwork have been sold nationally and internationally.
Stig work mainly focuses on humanity, relations, fellowship, family and unity. One of his artwork was sold to a therapist, that is using the painting to help traumatized children. Other paintings is hanging in a Home for mis-used women, to help restore their self-image. Stig is very engaged in social injustice, children's life-situation, refugees and migration. Charity, care and share in real life is important for him. The content in his paintings has been connected to the same kind of sensitivity and style as in Edward Munchs' artworks. Stig's art is also reflecting his life. Some years ago he created several strong paintings that expressed pain and trauma after a family-crisis. It is important for Stig to expresses his Christian faith and world-view through his art, and therefore he also do Prophetic paintings. Imagine a painter at the street who complete a painting and gives it to a stranger while the paint is still wet - this could be Stig. He has also taken paint and canvases to the drug-addicts park and let them paint and express their feelings - with great success. Stig love this quote from Van Gogh: "I feel there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people."
I create artworks with a lot of colours.
I work with optic colour mixing more often than blending the colours.
This can create an illusion of new colour and depth.
I paint in many layers before I go into details, which might be tiny people-figures.
I also work with my own version of Pointillism.
I am continuously searching for new ways to express myself, and I am in a continuous process to simplify my expression.
The greatest joy when painting is to stay in the creative flow.
Humanity and relations influence my art.
People in different shapes are one of my great passions, which can easily communicate in different cultures.
If I manage to express three levels of my message in a painting I am happy with my work.
I am a communicator and a relator, therefore I want to engage the viewer with my art and speak to their heart and feelings.
Symbols is an important factor in my art, and I leave hidden messages in them.
I want to show light through darkness, victory in challenges, faith in hopelessness and peace in trials.
I am happy if I can challenge the viewer to think, reflect and interact with the message in my artwork.
I hope the viewer continuously will continuously notice new things in my paintings and get inspired.
I want to make the great, Norwegian expressionist Edvard Munch’s words to mine: I will paint living people who breathe and feel and suffer and love.
