Kenneth is a renowned self-taught artist hailing from Trondheim Norway, who began his career as a hobby back in 1985. Since then, he has had his artwork published and featured in many magazines and newspaper articles.

At the beginning of his career, he taught at the Gerhard Schoenings school for youth with special social and learning disabilities for 14 years. There he taught a variety of subjects such as painting, drawing, blacksmithing, photography, music, and video work, before leaving that position in 2004 to paint on his own full time.

Exhibitions in 25 galleries across Norway alone, as well in other prominent cities such as Stockholm, Barcelona, Altea, and Milano.

He has also done artwork for special projects for various firms and companies over the years, thats resulted in book productions, illustrations, design and decorations.

Many feel Kenneth’s artwork is deeply spiritual, but he doesn’t like to label his art, leaving the interpretation up to the experiencer. His interests in colors made him study color teraphy to learn more about how the colors affects us in everyday life, and he tries to use this knowledge in his artwork.

Kenneth does all his work from a personal studio located in the countryside just outside Trondheim, called Studio Laaven. He has his own gallery there, where he holds 3 exhibitions every year.

The painting fills the most of his days, but beeing a visual artist, he often takes his camera out in the nature to search for inspiration. The drawing pad is always by his side and he never stops working with new ideas. Beeing a visual artist is more then a job, its a lifestyle. Enjoy your stay here and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about his art, classes, prices, exhibitions and private showings: klaug@hotmail.com
