Pompous self-importance in the literary and artistic world is a theme in several of Fiske´s series. Over the years he has developed and honed a distinctive, stylized drawing style, where perspectives and proportions are distorted.
He has made several short comic-stories and also two series of albums about the bogus poet Matje: Matje: Debutanten (1996) and Matje-ism (2000), which were collected in Matjemania (2010).
Together with Norwegian author and artist Steffen Kverneland he released “Olaf G.” (2004), about the artist Olaf Gulbransson and their journey into Gulbransson´s world. The book has been translated into German and Swedish.
Fiske and Kverneland followed up with “Kanon” (5 volumes, 2006-2012) about the artists Edvard Munch and Kurt Schwitters. Fiske´s story about Schwitters were collected in the book “Herr Merz” (2013), and have been translated into German and Dutch.
Fiske has also created the picture books “Kom, så løper vi” (2002), “På tre hjul” (2005) and “I farta med farfar” (2013). In 2014 “Min stil”, a collection of his illustrations from 1984 to 2014, was published.
Fiske´s illustrations has been published in a number of newspapers and publications, among them Swedish Dagens Nyheter and Nöjesguiden, and Norwegian Night & Day, Spirit and Aftenposten, where he draws weekly in A-magasinet.
He has also designed the graphic profile of Oslo Public Library, which was based on a commission made for the Literature House in Oslo.
Lars Fiske was festival artist under the Bjørnson Festival in 2007. He has also exhibited at Gallery F 15, Henie Onstad Art Centre and Tegnerforbundet.
