SPEAKER AT BIG 2019 - ÅGE PETERSON
Åge is an illustrator based in Bergen, Norway, with an MA in visual communication from Bergen Academy of Art and Design (KMD). Experiences from his past practice as a graphic designer has colored some of his formal approaches in illustration, in ways of using grid systems to create organised play with details and compositions within a given format. He specialises in editorial illustration and loves the process of creating conceptual visual perspectives based on text. Åge has received several awards for his illustrations, and currently does most of his work for journals, newspapers and magazines, like for example, Monocle Magazine. He believes in inspiration-diversity, getting his favourite fuel from movies, music, comics, paintings, photography, design, natural sciences, artist biographies and everyday observations and conversations.
