Welcome to the launch of the book Rock Portraits by Frode Felipe Schjelderup, taking place at Kunsthall Stavanger on Thursday, June 23, at 17:00pm. The artist will be present parts of the book, after which you can get your book signed. Everyone who pre-orders or buys the book at the opening will receive a special poster.

Rock Portraits began its 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 published 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.
