Mick Jagger's dog

I visited Galleri Parken in Bergen today, to see Norwegian artist Oddvar Torsheim's exhibition (15 May - 8 June). This guy is something else. He makes wonderful witty drawings and paintings, with titles that will be lost in translation unfortunately. I was lucky and met him at the gallery, and we had a nice chat about women and Rolling Stones (see "Mick Jagger's dog") and we made a deal that we would never color (or is that dye?) our grey hair.
He has made some incredibly weird songs too, that just could be cover versions of Beatles and Dylan songs (they're not of course - legal reasons!), and he even joined a competition to become the official Norwegian talent with his singing. Check out his singing here 1, 2.
