My name is Lea
Lea Alstad, a Norwegian visual artist, was born and raised in Trondheim and currently resides in Oslo. She is a self-taught artist skilled in various mediums, including murals, illustrations, books, prints, and paintings.
Her passion for painting and the visual arts ignited in her early childhood, and since then, she has dedicated countless hours to independent exploration and experimentation. Her artworks delve into the intricacies of the human experience, portraying both faces and bodies. Inspired by anatomical drawings, she skillfully captures the interplay of muscle fibers and contours using brush strokes and non-realistic colors.
Through her diverse use of mediums, she creates a rich tapestry of textures and blurs the line between abstraction and realism. Working with multiple layers, she skillfully creates the illusion of delving beneath the surface of her subjects.
In recent years, Lea has amassed a substantial following on social media, both nationally and internationally. Her artwork has found its way into homes across the globe, from Japan, the USA, and Australia to England, Germany, and beyond.
