Biography
Håkon Anton Fagerås (b. 1975, currently residing in Oslo) received his degree from the Norwegian National Academy of Fine Arts in 2001. He also studied at the Norwegian National Academy of Craft and Art Industry, and was a student of Jan V. Sæther. His first public commission was the Monument for Peace in Narvik, which was unveiled in 2006. A monument to Roald Amundsen was unveiled in Oslo in 2011, on the 100th anniversary of his arrival at the South Pole. A commemorative ice bust of Amundsen was simultaneously unveiled at the South Pole. Other commissioned artworks of note by Fagerås include the monument commemorating World War 2 hero Joachim Rønneberg, a coin for the Central Bank of Norway, a marble bust of Henrik Ibsen for the Ibsen Museum, and a public art piece to decorate the St. Olavs Hospital in Trondheim. He is currently at work on a statue of polar explorer Adolf Lindstrøm, as well as a public art commission to decorate the new hospital in Kirkenes.
From 2 June until 18 September the Vigeland Museum in Oslo is holding the first major museum exhibition of sculptures by Fagerås. The show will travel to the Northern Norway Art Museum in Tromsø in October.
