Nina Bang
Works and lives in Oslo
She studied at Statens Kunst og Håndverkskole ( KHIO)( 1976-79) and at Statens Kunstakademi (now KHIO) (1981 – 1986 and 1989-90). Her work includes several media, like paintings, graphic prints, digital print, neon and video.

Nina Bang explores nature processes meeting with technology in an ecological perspective. In her work she often use transparent media, where awareness of the present lightconditions and the subjectivity of the human perception process are important elements.

In addition to various exhibitions; e.g. at Baerum Kunsthall, Trafo Kunsthall, Atopia, Kunstnerforbundet, Tegnebiennalen, Høstutstillingen and Kunstbanken, Nina Bang has been working with site spesific art projects. For example large integrated elements of art at Sam Eyde high school in Arendal, at The Regional Hospital in Bodø, the office of the national Auditor General in Oslo. She currently works with a comprehensive art project for Emmaboda Muncipality, Sweden
