He studied at the Staatliche Kunstakademie Düsseldorff (1971 – 78), Klasse Professor Joseph Beuys. Dobloug is an important Norwegian artist, who left Norway and what be believed to be a rigid educational system for performing arts, to find his own way. Dobloug’s works have been shown in a large number of exhibitions, in Norway and abroad.
His works are mainly acrylic paintings displaying either abstract motifs or heads/faces. They are humorous, partly with contradictory elements in respect of both motif, composition and colours. The works span from strict geometric paintings including grid-patterns, to playful paintings executed with a rough, almost expressive, brush. There is furthermore conceptual side to Dobloug’s project. Still, this is not the dominant feature of his works.
Dobloug was granted the Norwegian Government Grant for Artists from 1995.
