Marit Geraldine Bostad, Abstract Expressionist

 

Marit Geraldine Bostad, Abstract Expressionist incorporates layer upon layer of acrylic paint, her canvases are imbued with a fresh, youthful approach: one of positivity, reinforced by an invigorating colour palette. She was originally an Art Director, with ten years experience working on visual projects in film, illustration and concept building in Oslo. Alongside her commercial work, she has always practised painting, as a way to release and unwind
