Ep 31 — Kristine Onsrud on her Art School TRAUMA, the Florence Academy, and Studying with Odd Nerdrum
Our guest for the evening is the Norwegian painter Kristine Onsrud. Many young, figurative painters can probably relate to her art school trauma, but there are probably few who have experienced that their painting got stabbed with a pair of scissors by their so-called colleagues. This is exactly what happened to Onsrud, who eventually left the London art school to get a proper education at the Florence Academy in Italy. But the “all you do is wrong”-mentality and lack of storytelling as an integrated part of the education at FAA, finally made her apply to the Nerdrum School where she has studied since.
⭐ Watch the BONUS-material where Tuv and Onsrud continued their conversation, touching on more absurd stories from the London University, Art School Confidential, and Pointless Painting at FAA:
The conversation was produced by Bork S. Nerdrum, with assistance from Cassander Straumsgaard, and Sebastian Salvo.
The centerpiece was a self-portrait by Kristine Onsrud. On the shelf were works she made at FAA and as a pupil of Odd Nerdrum.
