Hariton Pushwagner

1940 - 2018

Terje Brofos was an artist based in Oslo. He was born on May 2, 1940, in Oslo, and worked under the artist name Hariton Pushwagner. He studied at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts.

Pushwagner's early life was marked by turbulence and challenges. He grew up in Oslo under difficult economic conditions and experienced trauma and loss at an early age. These experiences would later shape his artistic expression and themes. His art is characterized by strong lines, vivid colors, and a detailed universe. He often explored themes such as social critique, consumerism, and human isolation.

One of his most famous works is the series "Soft City," which he began in the late 1960s and completed in the 2000s. This series of dystopian cityscapes reflects Pushwagner's criticism of modern society and its dehumanizing nature.

Pushwagner also achieved international success, with exhibitions in countries like France, Germany, the United Kingdom, and the USA. Terje Brofos passed away on April 24, 2018, but his artistic legacy lives on in several renowned art collections.
