Anders Gjennestad’s illusionary painted public art often features his signature, monochromatic characters scaling structures across the globe. The artist uses shadows with his figures to play with depth, whether on eroding buildings or adorning newly constructed offices in Norway, Germany, and beyond. The artist’s practice also includes humanscale, gallery-based work.
“Anders Gjennestad works with the constant concern to represent parallel worlds that can be interpreted by the eye and the brain in various ways,” Galerie Mathgoth says. “Although the overall evolution of the work of the stencil is notable in the increasingly increased focus it operates on the world since its inception, its characters remain the same, drawing.”
