Is known both as a painter, graphic artist and project creator. Educated from the National Academy of Fine Arts in Oslo and the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. Studied at The Art Students League in New York. The artist has been a student of painters Walther Aas and Rolf Schønfeldt and the American painters Ronald Sherr, Peter Cox, Michael Burban and Frank Porcu. Is behind the projects "Trollslottet" "Leonardobroa" and "Keplerstjernen". In 2006, he created Leonardo da Vinci's bridge of ice in Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica. The ice bridge on the south pole should focus on global warming and is an ongoing project.

EIMUND SAND

ARTISTIC RESPONSIBLE

The artist works mainly with geometric sculptures and has for many years toured with a notion of the history of mathematics in primary and secondary schools. Has written the book on the projects "Trollslottet", "Leonardobroa" and "Keplerstjernen", the book The Moment of Friendship which is a cultural history essay and the book "Montebellostjernen".

At Majorstua school he created the sculpture "Spherical Dodekaeder" which was a gift from NHO for the school's 100th anniversary. In 2017 he created the Altar Necklace for the newly built Jessheim Church, in collaboration with his brother Vebjørn. The eight-metre-tall star is a transformed Kepler star whose arms are transparent prisms. Eimund Sand runs SandAtelier at Tjøme, a workshop where new geometric art forms are developed.
