Storöy

"I think of my works as unfinished stories or scenes, inspired by my backstory from Northern Norway. They carry a sub-tone of otherworldly illusion and inhabit a somewhat haunted and ethereal appearance, inviting the viewer into a space where fantasy and reality are juxtaposed."

Storöy, a contemporary graphic artist and illustrator based in Hamar, Norway, is a visual storyteller deeply influenced by her upbringing along the rugged coast of Northern Norway, renowned for its rich tapestry of myths and folk tales. Growing up in a fjord surrounded by majestic mountains and glaciers, she found inspiration in the mysteries of nature.

Her artistic journey began with a passion for reading, drawing, and creating narratives that often featured mythical creatures and strong female protagonists. Rather than limiting herself to a single creative discipline, Storöy chose to embrace a diverse range of interests. Her education spanned graphic design, illustration, and fine art, with formative experiences in both Oslo and Milan.

This eclectic background is reflected in her work, which defies easy classification. Storöy's images blend multiple artistic directions seamlessly, creating visually compelling narratives that resonate with both depth and intrigue. Her unique approach invites viewers to explore and interpret her imaginative worlds, where myth meets contemporary expression.
