Oslo based illustrator Bendik Kaltenborn’s characteristic and playful lines are recognised in numerous cultural contexts around the world. In addition to a number of project’s based on a more artistic ethos, Kaltenborn frequently delivers illustrations for editorial giants like the New York Times, The Washington Post and The New Yorker. Back in Norway, and perhaps everywhere else, he is probably most known for being Oslo Disco’s mastermind Todd Terje’s permanent illustrator.
Today, a new Kaltenborn exhibition is about to open at Grafill in Oslo. Titled Tegning, form og farge (Drawing, form and colour), the exhibition — which also is a 368 page book release with the same title — displays a wide selection of album covers, posters, illustrations and more. In combination with the book and its written word, the exhibition offers a unique insight into the illustrators work and his improv-oriented process.
The book is published by No Comprendo Press, and new posters and illustrations will be up for sale.
The exhibition opens today, September 8, and runs until September 27.
Illustrator Andreas Samuelsson finds his voice by peeling away everything unnecessary down to its essentials. The result is bright and distinct—a trait that was quickly recognised by several stakeholders within the world of visual expressions.
