Marlen E. Flatsetø






"The need I have to create that is grounded in everything I do. I think in visuals and get inspired by anything. I love exploring techniques and mediums, and in my opinion an artist will never be fully trained - we are under constant development, and can always evolve our skills. Art has no two lined answer - it is very subjective. It is the feeling we are able to draw from the viewer and their connection to the painting that is key. To me there is no greater feeling than being able to inspire and trigger feelings to that extent that someone wants to have my work on their wall."

Marlen E. Flatsetø (1986) is an autodidact contemporary artist, based in Norway selling internationally. Her medium is acrylic, often a brush-stroked motif in combination with her signature colourful pour paint with metallic pigments on dark backdrops, that stands out and makes the motifs pop. The artist displays a varied range of motifs, from plain abstracts to sensual bodies, animals, portraits, ballerinas and skylines. Marlen is devoted to contributing to a better world through her art, and often connects fundraising for various causes to her projects.
