BIOGRAPHY

Born in Oslo in 1962. He has a solid fine art education. Graduated from the Norwegian art, craft and industrial design school. Studied for five years at the Norwegian states Academy of fine arts under supervision of the professors Guttorm Guttormsgard. Boge Berg. Steinar Kristiansen and others. Worked and studied abroad. in Berlin (Germany), Italy, France and Venezuela. Flo has been awarded The norwegian artists associations fund and The Lorck Schives legacy.

In addition to 28 solo-exhibitions in Norway, he has given his contribution to many of Norway´s most prestigious exhibitions with his sculptures, lithographs and drawings.

Joran Flo expresses the timeless human struggle between nature and culture. Through his own personal and highly individual forms one can sense the grip of the early Gustav Vigeland in his sculptures and trace lines of Eduard Much in his Lithographic works. All this in a manner that could not possibly be termed as superficial. A mighty expression, but pure in form, shape and interpretation.
