DOLK @ OSL Contemporary in OsloJuxtapoz // Friday, 09 Sep 2011
Norwegian artist Dolk, who just completed work for the Nuart produced ____Capitalism? project in Bergen, Norway, just opened a solo exhibition at OSL Contemporary in Oslo, Norway this week. The show features both works on canvas and street works coinciding with the show.
OSL Contemporary writes, "Dolk begins his process by identifying an idea, a personal insight, or a socio-political commentary and then develops the visual concept to the point that he can create a stencil. He makes numerous sketches, and then deconstructs the image to identify the different layers, of which stencils are then cut out of cardboard. Dolk explores the street environment to identify a façade that suits the image, returning at night to execute the work. The street art works have, by definition, an ephemeral quality. One doesn't know when they will disappear from their setting, and many images have been painted over or defaced."
Here are a few examples of Dolk's work, both indoor and outdoor. We have always liked his work in isolated places, like what you see above.
