About June Sira

In my paintings we meet people of ambiguous age in portraits or tableus that are fabulistic, symbolic or fragments of a story.
I went to the Oslo National Academy Of The Art where I studied painting, printmaking and sculpture from 1985 to1992. And took my Master of Fine Art at the Chelsea School Of Art, 1999/2000. After graduation I won the National winner at the UBS Art Award, for UK in year 2000 .
My work has been purchased by museums and institutions.I live and work in Oslo, Norway.
