Erlend Helling-Larsen


Erlend Helling-Larsen is a Norwegian artist who studied at the Oslo School of Painting and Drawing and at Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, where he received a Bachelor of Arts. Embroidery is one of many media he uses. By stitching directly on torn out pages from magazines such as Playboy, he at times obscures, and at other times enhances, the eroticism of the images he selects.
