Bjørn Båsen

Painting, sculpture, drawing and printmaking.

Bjørn Båsen (b. 1981, Eggedal, Norway) has a BA from The Arts Institute at Bournemouth and an MA from the Oslo National Academy of the Arts (Oslo). Båsen’s works invite the spectator into a whole new world. His skillful perspectives make one feel as though you could take a leap and fall into his illusion of a blissful wonderland. However, in his world of porcelain puzzles, cracks are always present and propped with references to deep and often dark matters. Båsen’s oeuvre is filled with references to mythology, past and present decadence – the fairytales of former glory meet the realism of today. His work is included in the collections of Astrup Fearnley Museum, KODE Art Museum, Bergen, Nordnorsk Kunstmuseum, Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrimuseum, Equinor, DNB and Statkraft, as well as numerous private collections nationally and abroad. Båsen has exhibited at various museums and private galleries, including Astrup Fearnley Museum (Oslo), Nitja Center for Contemporary Art (Lillestrøm), Blaafarveværket (Modum), Nordnorsk Kunstmuseum (Tromsø), Haugar Vestfold Kunstmuseum (Tønsberg), Stenersen Museet (Oslo), Rackstamuseet (Arvika), QB Gallery (Oslo), Anya Tish Gallery (Houston) and Galleri Brandstrup (Oslo).
