Werner Anderson is a multidisciplinary artist based in Oslo/Norway. His projects are produced across platforms as photography installations, books, web docs and art films. Werner´s work has received several awards and been shown internationally in the UK, Germany, Spain, Russia, Sweden, Ireland and Italy. He was recently Artist in residence at Edvard Munch´s Atelier focusing on 8x10" large format portraiture and is currently working on a long-term documentary project about the 22. July bomb/shootings (Oslo/Utøya.)
The main themes in his work can be described as a search for humanitarian hope and the surrealism in our surrounding. He moves in close in his still-life portraits and (works) with highly selective focus in his fine art photography. Inspired by walks in the wild Norwegian nature and with presence, curiosity and power of observation, Werner is approaching his subjects with respect.
