Ole Martin Lund Bø (b. 1973, Stavanger) has studied graphic design in Stavanger (BA 1993) as well as fine art at the Art Academy in Bergen (BFA 2002).

These two fields of interest are still very much apparent in his practice. Lund Bø’s paintings are geometric and expressive compositions inspired by nature – trees and mountains can be discerned in front of or behind graphic elements of strong colour fields: “I paint. For me, new reflections arise when what is not recognizable meets what already is. The turning point between affiliation and seeing something for the first time, creates a space which interests me.” Today Lund Bø is mostly known as a painter, however he has over the years also worked with highly interesting approaches to sculpture, installation and photography. His recent paintings are a culmination of years of visual experience, where his lightness of touch and playful approach result in strong and intuitive paintings.

Lund Bø has been purchased by private and public collections, e.g. Bergen Art Museum, Statoil Art Program, Stavanger Art Museum and Baroness Jean Von Oppenheim.
