“Sindre Goksøyr is a psychadelic moonshiner who, in a unique way distills the SENSES in his drawings, paintings and posters. Either he interprets the sound of a band, the vibe of a nightspot or the feeling of being an individual, alone or in a crowd, he portrays it with cartoony empathy and clean surfaces and COLOURS, colours that intensify our perception. His humane approach to art is top drawer, top shelf, PRIMO QUALITY!”
Terje Thorsen, CEO Tronsmo Book Store

WORK

Goksøyr has published numerous prize-winning and critically acclaimed books, and is published in a number of magazines, newspapers and other publications.

He´s awarded several times by Visuelt and The Most Beautiful book of the Year (NO.), both for his posters, illustrations and comics. He has also received multiple exhibition, project, production and travel grants.

Motive and drawing style is often a satirical and a surreal play with pop cultural clichés. His humorous comics are drawn in black ink and he often uses pure bright colours.
