About Britt Boutros Ghali

74 Artworks
Britt Botrous Ghali was born in Svolvaer, Northern Norway in 1937, where the saturation of light in the summer juxtaposed with the lack thereof all winter, and her family endured the harsh climate and daunting pressure of the Second World War. This emotional backdrop provided a fertile landscape for her bursting, colourful and emotional work. Her work today is as enigmatic as she is revered, and she is considered to be one of the most important Norwegian artists of this century. Steeped in the early influences of abstract expressionism, she studied painting and sculpture under Ellen Christensen and Ferdinand Lunde in Oslo in the late 1950s. Her earliest work deputed at Galerie de L'Universite in Paris in 1965. Botrous Ghali participated in the Abstract Expressionist movement in Europe in the 60s and 70s, and is still driven by these early influences. She has exhibited internationally throughout her career, and her work is widely collected, both privately and in public institutions worldwide. In 1996 she was awarded the St. Olav's Order, the highest honour given to an artist, by King Haakon of Norway, for promoting Norway through her art abroad. Edvard Munch is the only other artist to have received this honour. Botrous Ghali has spent the last 30 years in Egypt. Her studio is located on a barge on the exotic banks of the Nile and serves as a place of abundance, not only for the local artists and eccentrics to meet; but also for people who travel from afar to see and collect her work. Egypt's rich and colourful environment has been a great influence in her work. See more
