AboutBritish-Norwegian artist Kristoffer G Dickinson was born in 1989 Newcastle, England. Aged 10 he moved with his family to Austre Åmøy, an island nestled at the entrance of the fjords just of the coastal line to the North Sea. Steeped in Norwegian history also known as "The island the gods loved" Dickinson's early work can show inspiration deriving from Runes and Viking burial grounds that infuse the Island with its spirit.
Dickinson currently resides and works in Stavanger, Norway. Working in a medium that favours his statement "at one with the consistency of the flow" - Acrylic, but also uses watercolor, chalk, lead, ink and/or what is needed for a particular effect.
Key themes in Dickinson's art are derived from life experience. Dickinson's art took a turning point when faced with a particulary dark period of his life. He found using these emotions and transfering them to his creations made the wholeness of the work more real. Believing art is a powerful way/tool to communicate and share with the world. Using art as a release to turn bad affiliations/situations into positive. Suffusing his emotions into his work, seeking to reach people on a deep level while still maintaining a red line presented through his strong expression.
Experience and inspiration towards upcoming exhibition in collaboration with Zari Gallery, London. Derived from UNESCO, PARIS 2015, Exhibition for Woman and Peace, questioned about the theme - GLOBAL WARMING. wanting to show what is "real" in hope of making the theme visual enough to create impact to the viewer in a universal language of understanding. Wanting to place a story that is to be visual and discussed with open views. Recreating history visually formed from an abstract, questionable perspective. Spirit of Barcelona, Port ligat, Legends of Art, - it is all a part of the journey to a complete wholeness.
