Oda Tungodden is an artist residing and working between Cape Town, South Africa and Bergen, Norway. In 2018 she completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree at the Michaelis School of Fine Art.
Oda’s paintings occupy the space between reality, perception and imagination. Rooted in her own experiences, she uses her artistic practice to explore her childhood memories in Norway, and the origins and fluidity of her beliefs. Oda is fascinated by how we, as people, narrate and construct our understanding of ourselves in the world we live in, and the changes these stories undergo as we are informed by new knowledge and experiences.
