Description

This piece is part of the 2021 WE ARE NATURE Auction of works by international NOoSPHERE Artists *All proceeds to benefit WE ARE NATURE programming About The Artist Leo T (aka Svein Tråserud) grew up in Heddal at the outskirts of Notodden (the renowned Blues Festival town) in the Telemark region of Norway. He comes from a family of industry workers, hunters and farmers. A heritage both practical and pragmatic. This rising contemporary artist has attracted interest both at home and abroad since making his UK debut at the Parallax Exhibition in London in early 2012. Numerous exhibitions followed in Norway before his profile was further enhanced when he exhibited at the NOoSPHERE Arts Gallery in New York in 2015. As a result, Traserud has seen his standing increase at home in Norway as well as in Europe and the USA. Leos’ talent has been recognized by the renowned Norwegian short story author Hans Herbjørnsrud. The international award-winning writer, who has been translated into numerous languages, was impressed by the artist's unique style. As a result, Leo has produced ‘Herbjornsruds Universe’, which is a series of works based on the authors’ short stories. Explaining why he wanted to work with Leo in particular Hans Herbjørnsrud said, "I chose Leo to illustrate my short stories because he is the best of all to express the hallucinated realism I write”. Herbjørnsruds’ latest book 'Her kan alt skje' which translates as 'Anything Can Happen Here' was released by Norway’s largest publishing house, Gyldendal. The cover artwork features one of the works from the ‘Herbjornsruds Universe’ series. 2018 was a particularly busy year for Leo, with several exhibitions including an extensive solo exhibition at Galleri Osebro and a concept exhibition at the University College of Southeastern Norway, just to name a few.
