Dolk, a long time collaborator and regular guest at Nuart, took to street art with a passion in 2003 when he found himself in Melbourne, a city at the time regarded as the world capital of Stencil Art. Inspired by Banksy’s trip to his home-town of Bergen in 2000 and then later Melbourne, it wasn’t long before Dolk’s name and work was being discussed alongside the best of his contemporaries.
Banksy himself came calling in 2004 and signed Dolk to his Pictures on Walls print house with the first print “puppy love” being issued in 2005. A regular guest at the annual Santa’s Ghetto event as well as the Banksy curated Cans festival, Dolk is now regarded as a leading player in an international elite within the Stencil Art movement.
Renowned as much for his work in the northern windswept wilds of Lofoton Norway, with the much admired “Ghetto Spedalsk” project as he is for his work on the streets of Lisbon, New York, London and Oslo. Dolk recently made the successful transition from street to gallery with sell out shows in both New York and Oslo.
His highly profiled commissions on Halden Prison, The Norwegian School of Economics as well as Oslo’s Central train station has brought him a certain amount of unwanted “celebrity” status in his home country, but like many working in the genre, Dolk prefers to remain anonymous and lets his work speak for itself.
