Self-taught artist Henrik Uldalen uses glass plates as canvases for realistic oil paintings of eyes and mouths as a way to fuse classic figurative paintings with modern and contemporary art.
Henrik Aarrestad Uldalen (1986) is a self-taught artist whose creative production revolves around classic figurative painting, presented in a contemporary manner. Henrik seeks to explore ideas revolving around absurdism, nostalgia, loneliness and alienation, juxtaposed with frail beauty. Though a figurative painter, his focus has always been the emotional content rather than narratives. The atmospheres in his work is often presented in a dream or limbo-like state, with elements of expressionism.Henrik Uldalen
