When you look at a Dalí or any other surreal work and find yourself either delighted, sceptical or experiencing any other emotion, ask yourself — what could be concealed in my subconscious that would make me react this way? Who am I, and why am I feeling like this? And what does this tell me about the way I relate to the outside world?
My abstract portraits can be viewed as a counter-reaction to the classic portraits of the 17th and 18th centuries where I blend today's chaotic society, mental challenges and beauty into an abstract and surreal depiction.

A surrealist work isn’t about the piece itself, or even the artist who created it. In truth, it’s all about you. - Welcome to my surreal world.

Erik Brede is a critically acclaimed photographer and digital artist with more than 30 years of experience transforming ordinary spaces into one-of-a-kind experiences. His work has been exhibited and published in France, Italy, UK, the United States and Norway, and delivering unique, fine art photography to corporate, Healthcare, The Hospitality Sector, Cruise Ships and High-End Residences all over the world.

He was born in 1971 in Svolvaer, Lofoten Islands, Norway, where his photography journey started at the age of 11 after his father introduced him to the great magic of film development and post-production in his low budget darkroom. Even if the old analogue darkroom is replaced by Photoshop and Lightroom, his vision and creative ideas are still the same.
Producing a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its conceiver is what Brede’s artwork focuses on. Influenced by renowned artist like Ansel Adams and Rene Magritte, Brede creates surreal and fine digital artwork. With a conceptual approach, Brede tries to approach a wide scale of subjects in a multi-layered way to produce a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its conceiver. These works focus on concrete questions that determine our existence.
