Book Launch: Rock Portraits by Frode Felipe Schjelderup
Welcome to the launch of the book "Rock Portraits" by Frode Felipe Schjelderup.
The launch takes place at Kunsthall Stavanger, Thursday, June 23, at 5 pm.
The artist will be present, and it will be possible to get the book signed. Everyone who pre-orders or buys the book at the opening will receive a poster.
"Rock Portraits" began life as a Moleskine notebook, in which the artist created a series of paintings over multiple years. While some of the images have been showcased before, this is the first time the book in its entirety is made available to the public. The artist's signature style is recognisable throughout, and it touches on topics the artist keeps returning to, like metal music, identity, landscapes and wildlife. In addition, the artist shares his thoughts on relevant topics and guides the viewer through the book with short texts throughout the publication.
"Rock Portraits" is the first publication by Sæter Jørgensen Contemporary, edited by Erik Sæter Jørgensen and designed by Studio Bergini.
The publication received a production grant from the City of Stavanger.
