Trude Viken Norwegian, b. 1969
Trude Viken (b. 1969 i Lødingen, Norway) lives and works in Oslo. With painting, she explores the social and emotional façade and the mask we all wear. Within the framework of self- reflection, her painting studies and develops the grotesque, the macabre, the erotic and the humorous. In a short time, Trude Viken has exhibited separately on several occasions, including Fortnight Institute, New York, M + B Gallery, Los Angeles and Vestfossen Art Laboratory, Oslo. In addition, she has participated in a number of group exhibitions. In addition to the current exhibition at Belenius, Trude Viken has an upcoming exhibition at OTP Copenhagen later this year and a large separate exhibition planned at Kaviar Factory in Henningsvær, Lofoten in 2024.
