Fredrik Vaerslev, born 1979 in Moss, Norway, is a Norwegian artist. His paintings originate in three essential aspects of life in suburban housing estates:the villa, the garden and the garage. They mimic both material appearance and the gradual wear of their surface to express the notion of time, central to his work. The artist prepares his canvases with industrial spray paints to which are added various recycled products: tar, anti-corrosion paint, anti-rust, etc.. The canvases are then rolled up and subjected to various weather conditions before being exhibited, adding a random element of ornament to the artist's gestures.
