Oivind spent his university years ‘living’ in the print room, experimenting with various printing techniques. Screenprinting emerged as his weapon of choice, and the technique continues to influence his digital and printed work.
To Oivind, illustration is about storytelling. ‘Even if you only have one small image at your disposal, a story can still be told. And that, in a nutshell is my aim, to tell a story using whatever means I have’. He has been fortunate enough to tell stories for a long list of international clients, over a broad range of media.
Oivind is also the author of two illustrated books, published by Tabella, and his work has been short listed for the Nationwide Mercury Prize Art Exhibition.
