NY By Norse | Poster

Is a great honor to design this poster and also to be again an official partner of BY NORSE Events. This is the official poster design, it is a handmade illustration / mixed media.
“Just like it was for many Norsemen before us, after the success of our sonic raid in London, the desire to continue further westwards came faster than you can say Christopher Columbus. Viking jokes aside, it feels fantastic to announce New York By Norse. We aim to present a cultural event that encompass both the ancient as well as the contemporary and on a more personal note I am very much looking forward to do my first ever performance in New York!” —Einar Selvik of Wardruna.

By Norse, known as a “platform for art, music, literature, film, and culture,” will host an installment of events throughout December 9 and 10 in New York City, presented together with Noisey. These happenings are designed to support Norwegian art, music, literature, film, and culture abroad. New York By Norse will also serve as a celebration of 25 years of Grammy award-winning metal band Enslaved and as a platform for showcasing of Einar Selvik of Wardruna.

“2016 is Enslaved’s 25th anniversary as a band, and it is simply not acceptable leaving the US out of our celebrations. With a crazy schedule set for the year, we were turning every stone for an opening – and we found one! We are extremely proud to be able to present a double set in New York; to give the full width of old and new material, in conclusion of a fantastic year of celebration. When we started talking about By Norse and how we could bring the concept out into the world; “New York By Norse” was one of the first ideas to be verbalized. At the time it seemed more like a dream scenario than anything else. Then came London By Norse in March earlier this year; our first materialization of the concept – and it was a massive success! Turns out all these crazy visions were possible to turn into real life after all… and here we are.“ – Ivar Bjørnson of Enslaved.

Winterhorde | Worms Of Soul

Yes, I know you are bored of bands, videos, releases, promos, etc. But check out this new video I’ve done for WINTERHORDE , simply because I really wanted to invent something with this one and go beyond the “rules”… Please note: everything you will see is made while filming, there was no post production except extracting the best parts, stick them together and apply a color correction. So, it might be interesting or at least different. Just check it out. I would like to thank to Gina Sandulescu for her great help with the second camera and Alex Purje for the brilliant acting!
