About Henrik

Henrik Aarrestad Uldalen is a self-taught artist whose foundation is classic figurative painting and academic artists of the late 19th century.

His paintings are atmospheric and often presented dream-like. While his approach is based in realism, the aim of his work is not photographic accuracy but a personal interpretation of his subject matter.

"I wept, literally wept, looking at an Instagram post from Henrik once - it was titled “Efflux" if you’re curious. In that painting, as well as so many others from him, he somehow (I’m guessing black magic but that can’t be confirmed) painted a person’s soul. I just kept staring at it thinking that it was the most magical thing I had ever seen captured in paint."
