The roster also includes Lashauri, with over a dozen works by the Georgian painter selected for display within the gallery space.

The artist was present at the opening of the Ramfjord Gallery display last weekend, meeting visitors of the venue flocking to the launch event. 

Known for surrealist and humorous features in her works, Lashauri graduated from Tbilisi State Academy of Arts before embarking on career in illustration and painting. 

She has exhibited works at venues in Georgia and abroad, including T.G. Nili Art Space gallery and TBC Gallery in Tbilisi as well as MH Art Gallery in Bilbao, Spain.

The Ramfjord Gallery was established in 1998 by artist Elisabeth Ramfjord with the intention of providing exhibition space for young artists. 

The venue now has its own online store and works to promote Scandinavian creators working in diverse disciplines.

The exhibition featuring 10 new artists at the Oslo venue will run through July 23.
