Art as always been dissemination. Stripped down to its bare necessities it evolves around eternal subjects. Themes that makes a man’s life small and vulnerable, thus binding it to a greater gestalt.
I consider myself a storyteller. Art is communication, but the message should not be simplified. Art gives a different kind of insight than an explanation, and I believe in the activity of wondering. Art is one of the few arenas were the answer is not found on Google. There is no right explanation, and it is up to everyone to make their own.
In my work with painting, I use colors, symbols and forms to make stories. My artworks hence find themselves in a figurative tradition. Not in the naturalistic goal of representation of a frozen outer reality, but rather in the expressionistic manner of an inner reality.
Peik Elias creative work spans from fine art, through design as an explorative medium, to commercial design. He holds a Masters in Industrial Design, from The Oslo School of Architecture and The school of Applied Arts in Vienna. He also studied fine art in Copenhagen, and possesses a bachelor’s in philosophy from the Arctic University of Tromsø, and the University of Oslo.
In his spear time he tries to be as much out in the wild as possible. He favors the white mountains or the salt sea. Climbing peaks and alpine skiing during the winter season, and in the summer, he often find himself on a small boat thrown around by waves.
