Edvarda, a Norwegian artist, commenced her artistic journey at the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica in Venice, Italy during the mid 80s.
She subsequently earned her MA degree from the National Academy of the Arts and a BA degree in Art History from the University of Oslo.
Initially experimenting with abstract painting under the guidance of Professor Irma Salo Jæger at National Academy of the Arts, she evolved towards a stylized figurative technique and a profound dedication to storytelling.
Edvarda has showcased her work in various solo and group exhibitions across Europe and the United States.
Her active involvement in the Los Angeles art scene began in 2010 to 2019 where she immersed herself in the city's dynamic art scene, with exhibitions in both established and emerging art venues.
In the world of contemporary art, I have continually sought to explore new dimensions and push the boundaries of artistic expression. My creative exploration has involved a diverse range of mediums, including fine art, illustration, literature, and the digital realm, resulting in an evolving body of work that defies easy categorization.
At the core of my artistic endeavors lies a commitment to challenging and reshaping the portrayal of women in popular culture. Through my art, I aspire to provide women with a platform where they can be represented on their own terms, fostering a reciprocal dialogue with viewers. This narrative centers on empowerment, agency, and the reclamation of personal stories.
In summary, my work goes beyond traditional categorizations, striving to carve a unique path in the world of art. It is an exploration that extends beyond the canvas, aimed at contributing to the evolving landscape of artistic expression. I view myself as an artist with a vision, shaping the future of artistic discourse, and I hope that my work serves as a humble testament to the endless possibilities of creativity.
