Eirik Arnesen (b. 1990), from Oslo, Norway, received his education in the figurative arts at The Florence Academy of Art in Florence Italy, where he studied sculpture under Robert Bodem.
His focus is on the human body and the goal is to produce carefully thought out works with solid construction and organic naturalism in order to create a convincing image of the human body in accordance with the realist tradition.
Eirik currently lives and works in Florence where he is the principal instructor of Sculpture at the Florence Academy of Art.
"At the moment, I strive to include several priorities in my work, first and foremost accurate observation of the subject in pursuit of work that contain some of the gravity and physicality found in the natural world." ~ Eirik Arnesen
