A surrealist work isn’t about the piece itself, or even the artist who created it. In truth, it’s all about you. – Welcome to my surreal world.

This artist doesn’t just take a picture, he makes his own version of parallel realities where in fact, one click is never enough to explain our multidimensional existence. [ArtLimes, 2020]

Welcome to my surreal and fine art world

I’m a Norwegian visual artist, born in 1971 in Svolvaer, Lofoten Islands, Norway. My photo journey started at the age of 11 when my father introduced me to the great magic of film development and post-production in his low budget darkroom. Even if the old analogue darkroom is replaced by modern, digital tools like Photoshop and Lightroom, my vision and creative ideas are the same.

Producing a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its conceiver is what my artwork focuses on. Influenced by renowned artist like Ansel Adams and Rene Magritte, I create surreal and fine digital artwork.

With a conceptual approach, I try to approach a wide scale of subjects in a multi-layered way to produce a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its conceiver. These works focus on concrete questions that determine our existence.

My belief is that art should be accessible to everyone – On this site, you will find different edition, size and price, daily deals, personal communication and the possibility of making an offer on all my artwork.

My favourite quote is:

The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do. [Andy Warhol]

You don’t take a photograph, you make it. [Ansel Adams]


I take enormous pride in my craft. Designed to last a lifetime, my artwork is made from the best materials and on the best photo lab available – WhiteWall, Price for best PhotoLab WorldWide 2020.

Printing and presentation are processes that play an equal part in the creation of my artwork. A fine art photograph is something that can be held, displayed and passed on through time.

A photograph isn’t real unless it is printed
