I am Morten Bergquist, born in Oslo in 1965. I started my interest in drawing at the age of 4 years and have over the years had the great pleasure of creating images through drawing and painting. I am mostly self-taught, but have had a few rounds of evening classes at Oslo Drawing and Paint School of stilleben, live drawing and sculpture, a few rounds of croquil at the art academy, and a few rounds of live drawing study at Reidar Finsrud gallery in Drøbak, Norway. It is together with Reidar I feel I have learned the most. He is an accomplished artist who gives a lot of inspiration and learning for his students. I work mostly with acrylic on canvas because it is a fast medium and I have not quite the patience to wait for the oil paint to dry. Topics mostly come from what I like to paint in the moment, whether for the sake of challenge or sheer desire.
