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. 

A colourful portrait of PUSHWAGNER that will brighten up any cultural home. Hariton Pushwagner, was perhaps one of Norway's most important contemporary artists, and mainly known for his drawings and paintings concentrated on dystopian visions of the future.

An everlasting investment that will create a good atmosphere and good conversations for generations.

All my art prints are drawn by hand. I often combine traditional (analog) and digital art techniques. This art process is often referred to as D.G.A (Digital Graphic Art), Digital Fine Art Print, and Mixed Media.

D.G.A. is an art process that was early utilized by well-known artists such as Andy Warhol and has only recently become widely used in fine-arts. Pushwagner is among Norwegian artists who worked extensively with D.G.A. The difference between D.G.A and serigraphy is mainly how the colors (ink) are being applied to the paper.

Working with these techniques gives me a great freedom of color usage in the creation of my pop art pieces.
