Trygve Skogrand (1967) grew up on a vicarage in the Norwegian countryside. This created a love of nature and spiritual longing that is still evident in his work.

He originally educated as a civil engineer, before reeducating and starting to work as an artist in his early thirties.

With the wordless language of pictures, the main subject of Skogrand's work is mystery, expressed is the triangular conflict and dialogue between humanity, nature, and spirituality. Elements of myth are always present in his works.

Skogrand's works have been exhibited in the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Norway, and Sweden, and been published as three art books. In addition to his artistic work, he writes and illustrates children’s picture books.

Trygve Skogrand works from a small forest house in Trondelag, Norway.

"I spend my life wondering. I find myself thinking upon life, humanity, the spiritual life, God. This may be reflected in my art. Some days I think about things that may be taken for granted. Invisible agreements. And I wonder: But is it so? Other days I find myself wondering about things that no-one seems to be talking about. And wonder: Why? Things that doesn't seem to fit in, that are discarded from society or seen as without meaning often are starting points for my ponderings and pictures. Perhaps one day I will understand something of the world or what a human is?"
