About The Artist
Vidar, a Norway—Miami—based interdisciplinary artist graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in Glasgow, Scotland.
Vidar has been working as a full-time artist since 2020 after a relatively hectic career in the roles of Art Director, Creative Director, Marketing Director, and VP within the field of visual communications in multiple demographic markets for global brands.
Besides that, Vidar periodically worked with Pushwagner (1997-2010), an important Norwegian contemporary artist at the beginning of his rise to fame.
Inspired by years of work behind the scenes for Pushwagner (Terje Brofos), he gained a deep understanding of a variety of art techniques, color usage, and printing at a large scale.
Today Vidar combines his reservoir of techniques and knowledge in his art projects.
Other notable projects, Vidar is working on a socially engaged art project Lifeboat Around the World together with his partner.
They are converting a free-fall lifeboat into a floating art studio and home which will take them around the world while offering art programs in ports, local children's homes, schools, and other venues, as well as in remote areas, where art education and materials alike are limited.
While the build is in process and in order to contribute locally, Vidar recently became the chairman of the local art association.
Through Vidar's art projects, his aim is to awaken the general public’s interest and knowledge of their own culture and the wider world — through art.
