I was born in São Paulo, Brazil in 2003 and moved to Norway in 2017. My art, primarily created using acrylic, oil, and spray on canvas and paper, focuses on feelings, facial expressions, and memories. I'm driven by details, colors, and canvas texture. My move from Brazil to Norway deeply influenced my perspective, making me more observant and interested in human behavior and psychology.
This personal experience, combined with my admiration for artists like Basquiat and Dali, and thinkers like Socrates and Jung, shapes my work. My goal is clear: to challenge society to think. In a time where many are absorbed by TikTok and Instagram, my paintings aim to provoke thought and encourage critical thinking. I want to push people to be present, to see the world differently, and to chase their dreams actively. Beyond painting, I'm also passionate about photography, drawing, and design.
Born on October 11, 2003, in São Paulo, Brazil, Vini Kjekshus is a 20-year-old artist on a mission to spark critical thought and inspire individuality in a digitally saturated world. His art is a marriage of traditional techniques and contemporary vision, influenced by a broad spectrum of artists like Basquiat, Warhol, Picasso, and philosophers such as Socrates and Jung.
After a transformative move to Norway in 2017, Vini found himself enthralled by the study of psychology and human behavior. This curiosity transcends his personal experiences to inform his art, adding layers of emotional and psychological complexity to each piece. This multidisciplinary approach is underscored by his commitment to create a painting every day for a year, a disciplined endeavor that has crystallized his artistic voice.
Vini’s ultimate vision is to jolt society out of its digital malaise, encouraging people to engage with the world authentically and pursue their dreams actively. His works stand as compelling invitations to ponder life's complexities, pulling viewers away from the superficiality of social media scrolling and into a world of introspection and self-discovery.
