Arne Spangereid

Norway

Arne Spangereid (b.1981) is known for his cityscapes, and enjoys exploring the effects of combining abstraction and realism. He combines classical techniques with unconventional tools, and his paintings often invite the viewer to fill in parts of the visual story themselves.

Arne comes from Spangereid in Norway, and has studied art with various teachers in Malta, USA and Norway, such as Studio Incamminati in Philadelphia where he studied contemporary realism from 2008-2009. In 2005 he was invited to paint prime minister Alfred Sant live on TV, and also received a commission from Malta International Airport.

His paintings have been exhibited in several galleries in USA and Norway. Arne lives and works in Kristiansand, Norway, and is represented by Galleri Ramfjord in Oslo, Norway.
