About Tove Gravdal
I work as a full-time visual artist, mostly with non figurativ art. I also do landscape and portrait. However, in the past I was trained as a preschool teacher and had also education in special pedagogic. I was working with seriously sick children and their families in Neurosurgical Department at Rikshospitalet in Oslo and did love my job.
Like many others, I had a dream. You probably had a dream too. Like something you wanted to learn, to do or to be? My Dream was to learn how to draw and how to create beautiful artwork. I actually studied textile art and learned how to weave from high school, which have inspired me to become an artist. My first step was to pick up a book, called " To draw is to see" and started drawing. And I was obsessed with it. While working part-time at Rikshospital I studied art, especially doing drawing lesson from different books. I continued my journey and learned from several of the best visual artists in Norway, in both classical and modern art.
My dream became true when I attended 3 years part-time visual art education at Nydalen Art School in Oslo (2009-2012). Since 2010 I have been working as a visual artist and attending different painting and drawing activities. In 2014 I moved to Berlin, and I worked as a painter in my studio in the art gallery "Joao Cocteau " in Berlin-Neukölln. In 2016 I moved back Oslo and continued with my art project.
