This is me

About me :
Susann Brox Nilsen (Artist name Susi), born in Tromsø, Norway.
Selftaught artist. Painted since 2006.
As a person I'm a rollercoaster, a daydreamer, whimsical and colorful, and I have a weakness for chocolate.

I find inspiration for my art in a lot of things. Dreams, life experience, surrealism, cartoons, fairytales, graffiti, abnormal and bizarre things, generally everything that breaks from reality.

I use surrealism and metaphors in every painting.
Eyes are a typical feature in my work. Our eyes reflects our mood, sometimes better than words.

My art is important to me in many ways: it's my odd way to communicate with the world, but also a way to express my feelings and give me a peaceful mind.

I would descirbe my work as lowbrow style, surrealistic fairytales and a mix of dreams and reality.

Commissions are welcome!

Oilpaint FTW

So a couple of days ago I decided to give acrylic a new chance.
Last time I promised myself to never touch it again, for some reason me and acrylic just don't get along!
Anyways, I started a small painting, and at first it actually went really well. But then offcourse, on the 2ond layer it started to go to hell. I swear there was a demon sitting on my canvas laughing his ass off. The last hour I was dragging my hair and my paintbrush out of the canvas, since everything was bone dry. The colors looked like shit, and the face just looked like a carved stone.

Instead of smashing the painting and burn all my acrylics, which I seriously wanted to do,- I saved it for the next morning. I then continued with oilpaint, my BFF. That was like candy coming out of my paintbrush, and so I wrote a reminder to hang in my atelier:

1. You and acrylics will never be bffs
2. Acrylic is evil
3. If you all the sudden, against all odds, find yourself holding acrylicpaint in your hand - burn it as quicly as possible
4. Never paint with acrylic

Stay up late and make stuff

I beat my own world record in producing art! I've never painted as much as the last 3 months, and I still need to create non stop for the next 2 weeks to get it all done.
I really haven't had the time to look properly at my finished paintings! But SOON I will sit down with a big bowl of icecream and caramel dripping sauce, (don't remind me about my IBS in cases like this!!!) and just glance over what I've been doing for the last months! 

Sneak peek 1

Countdown for my vernissage at Clarion hotel The Edge has started, 
the opening will be on saturday the 1st August!
I named my exhibition "The place in between", and the theme is dreams ,- conscious and unconscious .
There will be 5 large pieces, and 3 small. 

Sneak peek 2

Bakgårdsmarked/ Pop up-marked Tromsø lørdag 13 juni

Da var vårens første marked på plass! NODA's bakgårdsmarked / Pop up marked i en koselig bakgård i Tromsø sentrum.
Til tross for regn (typisk!) så va vi heldig å stå under telt, og vi hadde deilige varmelampe i ryggen. Ganske koselig til tross for været!


 Se de utrulig søte godteri-skålen vi har laga på jobb! Blåseran har stådd for glass og lokk, og æ for graveringa! Kirsebæra er min favoritt!!
Vi har dem på Blåst Nordens Paris i Tromsø.

Progress of raingirl

Just put together some in-progress pics! I always love to see others artist's progress pictures, it's almost like being in the atelier with them.

This is the 2nd big piece in a serie of 5.

The red garden is finished

This is a commission for a friend that I've just finished!

"Garden of red poppies"
2015
Oil on canvas 


It's for a relative of mine, for him, his fiance and their baby girl.
Red poppies are a symbol of fertility, beauty and magic (among more),- which is a metaphor for their daughter. Aswell as the open space in her belly.
The birds symbolizes their free and open love for eachother. The open cage means that their future is limitless, doors are open for new things. Perhaps another baby coming, who knows? ;)
