Who is Kine Andersen?
Kine Andersen is a Norwegian artist who illustrates a retrospective of angst and oblivion.
Andersen grew up in the 90’s. Due to this, she absorbed the excessive energy of the epoch of boy bands, neon windbreakers, and dance floor jams. Andersen says “I have a hard time understanding my own feelings, so it is easier to draw them” Andersen was exposed to a wide range of unwritten rules and stereotypes that she didn’t want to be part of. “I felt like an alien most of my teenage years, therefore my illustrations are very lonely.” Her lonely souls’ images include a guy camping out outside of the supermarket and drinking the same beer every day, and the girl hanging out with her smoking cat. In a way, it’s reminiscent of the way Haruki Murakami books question the dichotomy of abandonment and belonging.
