For 16 years, Mobråten was absorbed in the art of Greek sculpture and classical painting as a pupil and collaborator at Rolf Schönfeld’s special school of art. Afterwards, he worked with the theories from Goethe and Steiner, focusing on colour at Finn Moes evening school while attending various courses in old painting and casting techniques at Statens Teknologiske Institutt (STI). Today, the artist works both classically figuratively and in free forms of expression. His subjects are mainly animals and dream landscapes, leaning towards the symbolic as well as the surrealistic. Several of his animal subjects are fetched from mythology and Norwegian folklore.
