Hanne Tharaldsen

Hanne Tharaldsen is a visual artist for people who love the unexpected. Through her complex paintings and multilayered photographs, she is here to fill your world with the wonders of color and lift your spirit to new and mysterious dimensions.

Her work is beautiful, yet elusive – and filled with symbols and subliminal messages. With an emphasis on impeccable craftsmanship, this artist creates works that speak mostly to your heart and soul.

Hanne Tharaldsen is influenced by mythology and yogic philosophy. She creates outer world scenarios inhabited by Gods and Goddesses, mermaids and fairies. Her aim is to bring a sense of mystique into people´s hearts and homes.

Her artwork has been extensively exhibited, with Høstutstillingen, Norske Bilder and Art Amsterdam as some of the highlights. In 2014 she finished the embellishment of the new headquarters of Yara International ASA. For this assignment she produced 30 large scale photographs. In 2017 Patanjalis Yoga Sutra , her first art book, was published by Aschehoug publishing house.

Hanne Tharaldsen was born and raised in Norway. As a highly sensitive child she spent most of her time drawing and reading novels, something that might have given her the tools to a rapid career as an editorial writer and photographer, starting at a very young age. Later on she worked in the world of advertising, photographing campaigns for brands like Honda, Tine, Telenor, Opel and Synsam.

When she´s not creating dazzling art for you to savor, you might find her hugging a tree during a morning walk, stretching her mind through yoga – or sipping Prosecco by the canals of Venice, one of her favorite sources of inspiration.

Hanne Tharaldsen lives and works in Oslo, Norway.
