Works by artist Torbjørn Olsen for sale
Faroe Islands painter
Born 1956 in Tórshavn, The Faroe Islands
Member of the Society of Art ´Den Gyldne´
Torbjørn Olsen is representative of the school of landscape painters that has, since the Second World War, characterised an aspect of art-painting in the Faroe Islands: seascapes – coastal hamlets. The colourful houses in kaleidoscopic clusters, the gables and the roof-tops´ sharp many-sided edges, the flat outlines of the fields and the monumental, contours of the mountains provide the basic subject-matter for a series of painters of this generation.
Torbjørn Olsen has followed his own path within this patterned world and taken a central position through his perception and sense of colour.
Torbjørn Olsen´s style and attitude to art signals an openess. His paintings are never closed, but open themselves and suggest new possibilities. His development as an artist up to the present time bears witness to this eternal quest.
