Pøbel is a Norwegian street artist based in Stavanger. He likes to paint deserted houses and stranded whales. In order to create art, he’s driving by the idea that people can get a feeling from looking at his work, and hopefully make them think.
“ I like best to work with site-specific paintings. So normally I find the wall first and make up the image based on the wall and surroundings. So for me biggest inspiration is the contrast between nature and city life. I like to put familiar images and scenarios from the “city life” and place it way out in the nature just to put it on pause and show how ridicules many of the things we do daily really are.”
Pøbel is influenced by some artists such as Banksi, E.B.Itso, Adams, Akay, Brad Downey, Escif, Horfee, Elmgreen and Dragset.
