Thomas "Bliss" Blix (b. 2000) from Asker spent much of his upbringing in the studio of his mother, the artist Tine Blix. He has been drawing for as long as he can remember, and chose to study at Asker Art School to dive deeper into the art subject.
His colorful works often have pop cultural references, but he also experiments with more abstract and surrealistic works. You will find interpretations by famous artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse in several of his works, and he is strongly inspired by music, and especially hip-hop.
"When I paint, I think that the canvas is like the rhythm, the paints are the instruments and the brushstrokes are the words. When I bring these elements together, I create a visual work of art in the same way that a composer creates a melody. "
His first solo exhibition at BL_NK Gallery's pop-up in Markveien in January 2021 was a great success where almost all of over 20 works were sold out in the first days. A few months earlier, the "Dream Scholarship" won and were a few artists who were allowed to decorate the outdoor area for Asker municipality. In the summer of 2021, Bliss followed up with his exhibition at BL_NK Gallery, this time in Bygdøy Alle. Once again, large parts of the exhibition were sold out in the first days, and we also got to see his first sculptures.
