About Henrik Olai Kaarstein
Henrik Olai Kaarstein was born in 1989 in Oslo (Norway). He currently lives and works in Brussels (Belgium).
Working with a multitude of everyday materials Henrik Olai Kaarstein brings out a delicate aesthetic in-spite of the materials mundane and utilitarian nature. Roughly, but at the same time ever so delicately and deliberately he joins silk paper, vinyl paint, oil pastels, tissue paper, lacquer, silicone, tape, marker and so on, to create works conveying personal and very intimate stories of desire, identity and of love lost.
Henrik Olai Kaarstein is represented by Gether Contemporary.
