Anders Kjellesvik is a painter and photographer, but also devotes part of his artistry to long journeys and art production in the public sphere. His photogravures and silkscreen prints are based on photographic material that reflect both self-experienced and imaginary places and expeditions. The photographs have been transformed into monochrome images – the series of images expresse a symbolic history, perhaps an archive with impressions from past times.
Anders Kjellesvik is educated at the art academies in Bergen, Helsinki and Copenhagen. In addition to a number of gallery exhibitions, Kjellesvik's works have been exhibited at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris and several biennales around the world.
