Who Is Strøk?

Anders Gjennestad aka Strøk is a Norwegian street artist from Arendal, currently based in Berlin, Germany. He is known for his multi-layered stencil work that contains extraordinary details. His stencils are mostly based on his own photographs. Strøk likes to recreate the photographic visuals on new surfaces such as decaying ruins of factory walls or rusted metal.
Allegedly, Strøk often chooses not to sign his outdoor works by any name, stating “that it is not important to him if people know the identity of the artist as much as it is important for them to feel something in front of his work”.

    Love it! At first I thought it was “Andrea”. BTW Where are all the women street artists? Maybe you can find some?

    These are just brilliant – the shadows still amaze me. I think I am a Strok fan.
