During the most recent years, Sverre Bjertnaes has been rising as a star in Norway’s contemporary art scene, with a strong artistic identity. He made his mark as a young figurative painter and drawer after attending the Norwegian “Nerderum School” as a teenager. Bjertnæs’ paintings frequently display portraits, where a playful tone meets the images complex relationships. His is an exciting artistic style that both stays true to classical figuration, as well as experimenting with conceptualism. His first solo exhibition was at the Norwegian gallery Anarchist Fraction runned by Bjarne Melgaard in 2000, a natural starting point as the two artists has developed close affiliation, both personally and creatively. Their relationship led to Bjertnæs first international solo exhibition, which was held at White Columns Gallery in New York in 2012. The exhibition was curated by Melgaard, and was called “A projective identification”, where the gallery walls was coved in bold colors and patterns, with portraits of carefully chosen depiction, of a variety of subjects, from Jesus Christ to the artist’s wife; rooms were filled up to the edge with paintings, drawings, films, and wooden – and bronze sculptures. The exhibition was named one of the 10 best exhibitions in New York in 2012, by the New York Times. The two artists also sheared a booth at the Armory Show the same year, intended as a whole installation work, which was named one of the best boots at the Armory Show, also by New York Times. In January 2014, Bjertnæs showed in a much celebrated solo exhibition at the Oslo based museum Stenersen Museet. Bjertnæs has been represented by Galleri Brandstrup since 2014 and BEERS since 2016.

SVERRE BJERTNAES (b. 1976, Trondheim) lives and works in Oslo, Norway. He 
was educated at the Norwegian National Academy of Fine Arts in Oslo before further developing his studies at AKI Academy of Fine Art in Enschede in Holland. Notable exhibitions include Det kollektive mennesket/ Minner om oss, Galleri Bradstrup, (2017); Cold Reading, James Fuentes, New York, (2014) and;  If you really loved me you would be able to admit that you're ashamed of me, White Columns, New York, (2013). Bjertnes has also successfully exhibited in a number of International Art Fairs including, The Armory Show (2013) alongside Bjarne Melgaard and exhibited once again at The Armory Show (2017) as a solo presentation. Bjertnes' first solo exhibition with BEERS opened on 25 May through to 1 July 2017.
