The Artist

Hello, I am Vidar, a Norway—Miami-based interdisciplinary artist graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in Glasgow, Scotland.

Today, I am a full-time artis, and grateful to all of you who make that possible. I landed here after a relatively hectic life in the roles as Art Director, Creative Director, Marketing Director, and VP within the field of visual communications in multiple demographic markets for global brands.

Besides that, I 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), I gained a deep understanding of a variety of art techniques, color usage, and printing at a large scale. 

Today I combine my reservoir of techniques and knowledge in my art projects. 

In addition to be working on visual arts, I am working on a socially engaged art project together with my partner. “Lifeboat Around the World”, A Socially Engaged Art project aiming to connect people with their own culture and the wider world — through art. 

We’re converting a free-fall-lifeboat into a floating art studio and home which will take us around the world while offer 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.

In order to contribute a little locally, I recently became the chairman of the local art association.


My work has been recognized and purchased by the Fram Museum, and Kilden theatre in collaboration with the county of Vest-Agder, Vest-Agder museum, Vest-Agder Museum, the public library, Vilhelm Krag association, and Visit Sorlandet, among others.

The projects’ purpose is to awaken the general publics’ interest and knowledge for their own culture and the wider world — through art.
