Marit Geraldine Bostad is a Norwegian abstract expressionist painter. She was originally an Art Director with 10 years of experience working on visual projects in film, illustration and concept building in Oslo. Alongside her commercial work, she practiced painting as a way to release and unwind. In 2010, Bostad left her career to pursue her painting full time.
Her abstract paintings are inspired by memories and people, whose essence she intuitively attempts to preserve on the canvas. Her creative process is often characterized by different layers in contrast with each other – a constant battle for the right kind of unbalance. Her work is richly coloured, vibrant and textured, incorporating layer upon layer of acrylic paint. She currently works in a disused naval base, surrounded by nature and historic buildings.
In April 2017, Bostad was picked as one of the "4 Must-See Artists" at The Other Art Fair London by Rebecca Wilson, Chief Curator at Saatchi Art. She was also an artist in residency at Eileen S. Kaminsky Family Foundation in New York, summer 2018. She has exhibited her work in Oslo, London, New York and LA and has received substantial acclaim from curators as well as galleries throughout Europe and the US.
