i discovered his work about 10 yrs ago-- and immediately bought as many of his books as i could find! i wanted to learn about him and his techniques.. i am fascinated by his subject matter and his old master style (which is influenced by Caravaggio and Rembrandt.
born in Hälsingborg, Sweden in 1944, I would characterize Odd Nerdrum as a true genius, a master painter of the human body and a true humanist. A great Kitsch painter! His paintings reach the souls of humanity. His paintings are a universal language. His paintings feel alive. He paints life and death for all to see.
