Unison Colour welcomes Arild Frisnes as an Associate Artist
Arild Frisnes b. 1966 is a self taught pastelist. He has lived most of his life in the north western part of Norway with the beautiful and wild nature this area of Norway has to offer. He is educated horticulturist and has worked as and had his own company in that field for several years. After a health issue in 2014 he had to retire and now he is a full time artist. Arild started to work with pastels in 1991 and it has been his main medium for the whole time with the exception of some years.
“My art journey started like many of us in the childhood. I remember drawing a giraffe and discovered how to make shadows , it was an eyeopener. “
“I always seek to find a subject or mood in the landscape that has a meaning or starts a emotional spark in me”
Arild constantly tries to push himself forward by exploring the way we are percepting the nature and environment around us.
Arild is inspired of the impressionists and has special place in his heart for the Norwegian artist Fritz Thaulow (b.1847 d.1906) He is active in his local artclubs and has participated at exhibitions both localy and internationaly. He is also a member of Pastel society of America and Pastelguild of Europa.
He now lives in the town Molde with his wife Inger Anne and Andrea, the youngest of three daughters.
It seems a while ago since we asked for applications from artists to become an Associate Artists & wow the applications came in thick & fast. So much so it took our Unison Helen a good while to get through them all.
