Oyvind Torseter

Inspired as I was by the curating of the Children's Art Gallery in Bergen, it also allowed me to explore a Norwegian children's illustration.  My favourite discovery was Oyvind Torseter, who works with drawings, collage and 3d papercraft to create his scenes, which are photographed.  Beautiful and inspiring!  And without seeing one of his hand-crafted landscapes in the exhibition, it's hard to imagine how the 'flat' illustrations in the books were once so utterly 3 dimensional.
