AFK (NO)

In the past few years Bergen-based AFK has established himself as one of Norway’s leading street artists with his work being among some of the best examples the country has to offer.

 

His instantly recognisable, monochrome stencils are often laced with political commentary. By bringing issues considered taboo into the public sphere of discussion, AFK aims to inspire critical questioning of our conventional understanding of the world.

 

In April he produced one of 2018’s most discussed works of art in Norway when he depicted a crucified Sylvi Listhaug (Norway’s former Justice Minister) in a street painting titled "Making A Martyr".

 

The controversial painting urged the public to look beyond personality politics, mass media and the dehumanization of refugees – a trend which Listhaug propogated - towards the wider cause and effect of the global refugee crisis.
