Pushwagner Exhibition

This last Wednesday I went to the opening of Pushwagners exhibition at Galleri Sult in Stavanger. Back when I lived in Australia it was a weekly and even daily event to attend opening nights at different galleries around Melbourne – but Stavanger is a way smaller city and less events happening. Not to mention they are usually more “hidden” within the circle of friends, family and colleagues of the artist. Pushwagner on the other hand is a very well known artist, so it was a big event and I was excited to finally go to an opening night for the first time since I got home to Norway.

We were met by a huge queue outside the gallery.

“Boogie Woogie” print 14/14, the most expensive artwork at the gallery. Selling for 100,000 NOK, equal to $17,000.

“Self Portrait” was my favorite of the exhibition. Both in the expression but also in technical performance. It’s a good artwork from a distance, and it encourages you to go closer to look at the detail of the artwork.

There was more than enough people at the opening. Approx 500 people attended the opening which my 50mm was unable to capture.

The classic “I was there”-photo,
since I’m usually just behind the camera.

I like the “Going against the (main)stream situation.”
