Urban Portraits

If you happen to be in the area around Schwerin in Germany coming week, you may visit an exhibition with a special connection to Enjoy Food & Travel. Paintings made by Malin Kjelsrud and ceramic sculptures by Kristin Rasmussen are displayed at Jagdschloss Gelbensande from April 14th to June 22nd.

On this poster you find a portrait of a man with clear blue eyes holding a wine glass. This is one of two paintings of me, destined for my summer home. Malin Kjelsrud is an extremely gifted artist with an original interpretation of her motives. She is engaged to my good friend and Enjoy Food & Travel co-writer composer Dagfinn Koch.

The exhibition is sponsored by the Norwegian Embassy in Berlin and Nordic Noble. I was invited to the opening at Jagdschloss Gelbensande but I could not attend. I will, however, be happy to attend when the exhibition reopens in Schwerin in August.
