Former Mortiis drummer releases limited edition prints

Svein Traserud with the original 'Fruit Head-Pear' artwork

Former Mortriis drummer Svein Traserud (a.k.a. Leo Troy) who joined the band in 2001 and was featured on the album 'The Grudge' before leaving in 2007 to pursue his interest in the contemporary arts has issued a series of limited edition prints featuring three of his works. The illustrations – 'Vannbæreren', 'Untitled' and 'Fruit Head – Pear' are limited to twenty copies, and are printed on Hahnemühle Fine Art Baryta 325gsm paper and individually signed and numbered by the artist .

 The 'Vannbæreren' illustration was chosen by international award winning Norwegian author Hans Herbjørnsrud for the cover of his latest book 'Her kan alt skje' ('Anything Can Happen Here'), which was released earlier this year through leading Norwegian publishing houses Gyldendal. Hans Herbjørnsrud stated:

"I chose Svein Tråserud to illustrate my short stories because he is the best of all to express the hallucinated realism I write”.

Earlier this year Svein exhibited some of his works at the Notodden Centenary Exhibition which took place at the Telemarksgalleriet in Notodden, Norway.
