Børge Bredenbekk grew up in Stavanger, Norway before studying for a BA (Hons) in England between 1993-1997. After graduation he worked as a graphic designer and illustrator in Switzerland and New York. Børge returned to Oslo in 2007 and helped to establish the Brenneriveien collective, and became one of the first illustrators to join byHands. He now works from his home in Fredrikstad, where he largely focuses on drawing and printmaking. His work combines a mix of different traditional and technical skills - with a consistently keen eye for storytelling, carefully considered compositions and bold visuals. Drawings are usually pencil or charcoal and explore the contrasting themes of darkness and beauty, whereas graphic works tend to embrace the interplay of bold lines and patterns. Børge’s commercial work has won numerous awards, and his art prints are highly sought after both in Norway and overseas.
