FRIENDS OF JUKSEREI – KJERSTI
Say Hello to Kjersti
Kjersti is a visual artist based in Berlin. She works with different
techniques such as painting, illustration and photography. Being
from Norway, nature often plays a central role in her art.
She is – as her art – very colorfoul and alluring. Kjersti has a great
passion for interior design, everything glitter and is a master
decorator! We visited her at her home which also functions as her
atelier for a coffee, a chat and some disco ball glitter fun ;).
1. When do you feel most beautiful?
When I'm in my creative zone doing what I love.
2. What is your favourite Jukserei piece and why?
3. When did you know you wanted to do what you're currently doing?
I always wanted to be an interior designer or architect. But at the age of 14 – after
spending a day at an architecture firm – I learned that I had to follow a bunch of
rules AND do math if I wanted to do this. As I'm dead scared of both rules and
math, I switched to art.
4. What inspires you?
Weird color combinations, music, nature (or the lack of...),
travelling and architecture.
5. What's your best childhood memory?
The long summers at my grandparents' place in the Norwegian countryside.
Swimming in the sea, eating freshly picked strawberries and making waffles. Yum!
5. Why did you move to Berlin?
Because of Modulor, haha! ...and the feeling of freedom.
that jewelry appeals to every woman no matter their age or culture! Check out
Kjersti's artworks in her webshop or her website, or follow her on Instagram.
