Henrik Uldalen

Henrik Uldalen (b.1986), is a natively figurative painter from Norway, working out of London. The core of his work revolves around the perimeters of existentialism and melancholy. With a soft neo-classicist touch juxtaposed with bursts of destruction and violence he often speaks about his perception of human nature and its cognitive dissonance.


"Adflictus", oil paint on glass,10seconds, MP4, 2022, represents the breaking of a heart. A burst of sadness following many of the human tragedies over the last few years. Hope for the future turning to bitter cynicism. Slowly hardening my defences and building walls in order to never feel this way again.
