Bjorn Lie is a Norwegian artist based in Bristol, England.
Inspired by old botanical illustrations, folk art and noir films, Bjorn's professional and personal work is playfully naive yet rich with detail and texture.
He seems drawn to anatomically incorrect characters and strangely beautiful landscapes, bizarre flowers and plants. He likes orchids, although their flesh is too much like the flesh of men, and their perfume has the sickly sweetness of corruption.
Designed and tested at the Deus House of Simple Pleasures, Camperdown, Sydney.
