Bjornar Aaslund

Norwegian artist Bjornar Aaslund is known for his dynamic and abstract landscape paintings. Large in both scale and impact, Bjornar’s paintings combine the emotion of the abstract expressionist style with the colours and tones found in nature. A fluid sense of movement enlivens Bjornar’s paintings, with certain repeated motifs, colours and marks making for a rhythmic composition.

Education and Career

Bjornar graduated from Einar Granum Art School in Oslo in 2005. He lives and works in Norway and is a member of the Norwegian Visual Artists Association. For the last twenty years, Bjornar has shown his paintings internationally, and taken part in exhibitions across the USA, Norway, Croatia and the UK.

Bjornar Aaslund’s Approach

Bjornar sees painting as an intuitive process, and likens the act of making the first marks on a canvas to stepping into untouched snow. Whether creating landscapes or seascapes, Bjornar does not record any one particular place, and instead imagines his subject from his memories. When painting from his imagination and his memory, Bjornar imparts emotion into each and every brushstroke. Linking the recognisable with the unknown makes Bjornar’s paintings open to the viewer’s own interpretation.
