Collection: Bjarne Melgaard

Norwegian visual artist. Best known for his expressive paintings, installations, photography and video art that often challenge boundaries and conventions. Melgaard's art challenges the audience, evokes strong reactions and often deals with issues of homosexuality and violence. In Melgaard's pictures, the line between reality and fantasy is often blurred and his works are often filled with symbols and executed in strong colors.
