Stian Heimlund Skjæveland (born November 19, 1973 in Stavanger) is a Norwegian representational painter and sculptor in the figurative tradition who also draws in black and white. He is inspired by the horizon, geometry and the tension between light and darkness (chiaroscuro).

Life and work[edit]

He has formal background from Kunstskolen i Bergen (The Art School in Bergen),[2] Merkantilt Institutt (MI) i Bergen, and Tegne-og maleskolen i Bergen (Bergen Drawing and Painting School), Norway. After finishing formal education he independently studied the old masters such as Leonardo da Vinci, Titian, Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Johannes Vermeer, Diego Velázquez, Goya and J.M.W. Turner.[3] Within a Norwegian context the mystical landscape visions created by Lars Hertervig has been closely examined.[4][5] As a creator of pictorials Stian has performed for the last 20 years, and has been purchased by Mayor`s office and Council chambers municipality of Strand, Norway.[6] The artist has in recent years simplified his paintings to achieve a more monumental expression.[7] Stian Heimlund Skjæveland has his own gallery in a small former shipyard[8] in Jørpeland Norway.[9]
