KRISTIAN EVJU

Born in Kongsberg, Norway and currently living and working in London, Kristian Evju studied fine art at Edinburgh College of Art graduating in 2007 and completing his MA Fine Art in 2011 at Chelsea College of Art London. Evju's amazing attention to detail is apparent in his skillfully mastered drawings and paintings which are collaged together with various elements and portraits to create 'visual screenplays' evoking feelings of nostalgia. Kristian's work was shortlisted for both the Jerwood Drawing Prize and the Derwent Drawing Prize in 2016. He has had several solo exhibitions in London and Norway as well as being awarded the Ruth Katzman Scholarship residency in New York in 2014 and 2016.
