Sverre Bjertnæs (b. 1976, Trondheim) has a degree from the Art Academy in Oslo (1999) and the Duch Art Institute in the Netherlands (2004). Bjertnes has been apprentice to some of Norway's most famous figurative artists, such as Tore Bjørn Skjølsvik (1989-93) and Odd Nerdrum (1993-94) already as a sixteen-year-old. His previous work is characterized by an attraction towards dark tones and still-life, portraits and model studies. During his time at the academy, Bjertnæs explored a more photorealistic painting method with more subdued colours with Villiam Hammersøy as an obvious source of inspiration. His recent work also reflects an exploration of the creative process's dialogue-based starting point, based on greater collaboration with other artists, directors, actors and writers. Through the use of literary and art historical references, Bjertnæs creates a distinctive artistic expression, which has made him one of Norway's most sought-after artists.
