Magnhild Opdøl

Having worked in a number of art galleries and having had the good fortune to know a number of artists, I have been able to amass a small collection of art.  Although it’s been a while since I’ve had the money to add to it, I have already earmarked my next purchase which will be a drawing by Magnhild Opdøl.

I first came across Magnhild’s work in Monster Truck in 2007 and have seen a couple of her exhibitions since then. Magnhild was born in Norway in 1980, and is now living and working in Dublin. Since graduating from the National College of Art and Design with an MFA in 2007 she has been widely exhibited both in Ireland and internationally. Magnhild’s recent exhibitions include: Forty Years of Norwegian Painting 40/40 at Stenersenmueet Oslo; Project space at Platform, Dublin Art Fair, RDS; Clairmorris Open Exhibition; solo exhibitions in Gallery LNM, Oslo and The Lab, DCC, Dublin.

Check out some drawings originally sourced from Magnhild’s blog.

  1. According to Mags: Next up is a solo in Draiocht, then a group show in Kevin Kavanagh and then Im in a show in RHA in September.

    I totally recommend going to see her work. She’s an incredible artist and her shows often include a lot of interesting taxidermy! Check out her blog.
