Vernissage: Nordic Light, December 11

November 15, 2011


Erik Ask – Nordic Light



Where: Dokmai Garden, Chiang Mai, Thailand.

When: Sunday, December 11, 2011 at 15.00 – 18.00.

Meet Norwegian artist Erik Ask, have a sip of wine and admire some of his selected paintings (Nordic landscapes, American landscapes, Portuguese landscapes, floral motifs, non-figurative motifs). Since you buy straight from his studio and since most paintings are unframed Erik generously offers his exquisite paintings within a price range of 2500 – 6000 Baht. The exhibition will only last until January 11th.

Free entrance to the vernissage.

VIP card holders can enter the garden for free until 18.00. Other visitors pay 100 Baht.

No need for ticket reservations, but we kindly ask journalists to contact us in advance to set the time for interviews between 13.00 and 16.00.



Erik Ask was born in 1937 in Sandefjord (Vestfold) in Norway. Already as a teenager he explored painting and sketching. For a living he became a sailor and a whale hunter, but eventually he decided to go to Copenhagen and study art at the schools of Bergenholtz and Dupont.

Erik can be described as a multi artist. For many years he made stone monuments using a Norwegian granite (Larvikite), some of which were bought by the Norwegian government and can be admired in Stokke (Vestfold). Erik is also a silversmith, a knife maker and a wood carver. In his sixties Erik returned to his original passion; painting.
