About

​   Klavs Loris’ artistic style can be observed in his large-scale works, where the painter continuously experiments with techniques, combining classical oil painting with more modern mediums and materials. During these experimentations, Klavs Loris has developed his own author-technique, which combines photography, digital print and classical painting.

"Historical processes, and the available literature generate a big influence on my creative work. The visual and written heritage that is left to us, as well as transmitted values affect me on a personal level. An essential part of the creative process is the text. Keywords and concepts by philosophers and thinkers, and writings from different cultures around the world are as a “backbone” for the paintings, from which the visual side of the work is derived later on."
