The Odd Nerdrum Kitsch painter’s book Crime and Refuge with foreword by Hanne Nabintu Herland displays his work over the years.
Odd Nerdrum is the most widely acclaimed Norwegian painter since the iconic Edvard Munch, with world famous Nerdrum collectors such as Paul McCartney and David Bowie.
In the foreword, Hanne Herland writes that few in history retain originality and carry the breath of God, the willingness to reflect and create, which ultimately leads to their immortality.

He is one of our time’s greatest painters, a genius dissident individualist who deconstructed the emptiness of modernism.
Excerpt: “In these grand works of eternal art, time remains timeless. The life of others becomes mirrors of our own, as the fellowship of men warms us in the brutal state of a dying world.
We sense the possibility of illumination, for integrity as a choice. Here is life as well as trepidation and death. The consuming journey of mankind begins the day we are born and slowly guides us towards death.
With the gravitational force of reality as a lifelong challenge we are trapped in the struggle between life and ruin. Some cannot handle the consequences of their own choices. We die from the poisons of the mind.” Buy the book here.
