Often referred to as the artist with the beautiful colours, Elling Reitan invites the viewer to find their own interpretation of his artwork. Influenced by Edvard Munch and religious Middle Age motifs, he also takes inspiration from his travels and the colours around him. “The red sunrise in the east, seen on the plane to Shanghai and Beijing, is a great source of inspiration and has contributed to my latest paintings, called Rothkoscapes – after the American painter Mark Rothko,” Reitan explains.
