Norwegian artist Hanne Væringsaasen is best known for her colorful, extensive and profound artworks. Her main media is acrylic on canvas, as well as drawing and graphics. She has worked out of her studio in Oslo for years and has a master’s degree in Art and Design.
She has participated in a number of exhibitions. Worth mentioning is her participation in the jubilee exhibition in Queen Sonja’s KunstStall, where one of her graphic artworks was included in the Royal Collections. As a visual artist, she has also participated in joint exhibitions in several countries; UK, USA, Japan, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, UAE, Sweden, in addition to Norway. Her future goal is to work towards more solo exhibitions in order to be able to show a larger body of artwork from her artistic practice.
Her artistic idiom is cohesive, consistently, unique and lasting. The interest and demand for her artwork is constantly increasing and should be seen as a good investment.
