Elin's artist CV
Elin Bjorsvik is a Norwegian-born artist and painter who lives and works in London, UK. She works predominantly in the medium of acrylic painting, but has also an interest in printmaking and digital art.
Elin received a BA in Fine Art in 1998 from The Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, and moved to London shortly thereafter to attend her first solo exhibition in East London.
She has since had several solo shows and participated in many group shows the UK.
Her paintings have also been featured in a short film and her work has been sold to clients and collectors in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany and USA.
Elin's work is an exploration of form, colour and composition intending to create a feeling of another dimension in her paintings.
Sculptural and geometrical modelled shapes are composed into three-dimensional abstract landscapes and spaces; representing gateways that quietly communicating the need for balance, order, harmony and serenity.
Her most recent solo exhibition was in March 2011 at Gallery 27 in Cork Street, Mayfair, London, and in 2012 she exhibited with the National Association of Acrylic Painters (NAPA) in the Williamson Art Gallery, Birkenhead.
"Acrylic is the perfect medium for me. As quick-drying paint it allows me to slowly build up the image by adding several thin washes of paint on top of each other, creating a three-dimensional feel and flow through the use of layering of paint."
