Mariken Steen-Forgaard

Internationally renowned Norwegian graphic artist Mariken Steen-Forgaard has an academic background in communication design, so storytelling is a big part of her creative process.

Describing her work as a “curious exploration of new ideas”, whether working on a commission or a self-initiated project, Mariken likes to repurpose the materials she’s got to hand. Often pursuing abstract concepts, such as memory, imagination, and perception, the overall aim is to merge the mundane with aesthetics and philosophy.
