Audar Kantun Norwegian, b. 1986


Nestled between satirical cartoons and new national romanticism, you find the works of Norwegian artist Audar Kantun (b.1986). The exploration of the narrative takes center-stage in Kantun’s work. Through large-scale paintings and ceramic sculptures, he creates a singular universe of peasants, fishermen, and the drunken clientele at his regular bar. Working within a figurative idiom where distinct colors and shapes fill the canvas, his images are cheerful and absurd, with a dark sense of humor.

Kantun has an MA from the Norwegian National Academy of Fine Arts in Oslo, having previously obtained a BA in Photography from the Bergen Academy of Art and Design. His works have been exhibited at Blomqvist (NO) Destiny’s Atelier (NO), and Kraft (NO).
