Figurative painter Kristen Vestgard
Norwegian figurative painter Kristen Vestgard was born in 1976. In childhood she had dreamed of becoming a fashion designer, and the traces of her dream can be found in her paintings – of slim women, their ephemeral appearance create the mystic atmosphere in which they exist. Kristen Vestgard got her BA in Fine Art studying painting and drawing in Nordfjord, Oslo and Falmouth College in the UK. She successfully exhibited her paintings in art galleries in London and Norway. The artist as if has left a space for us to interpret the imaginative world of her paintings. Her figures are always female, they hide their inner world, emotions, thoughts and atmospheres. Kristen Vestgard compares them to “a diary with no words“. Kristen Vestgard lives with her family in a traditional wooden house in Norway. She is a member of union of Norwegian artists.
