For four decades Sissel Blystad has been a central figure within Scandinavian textile arts. She creates large scale tapestries and shaped textiles using bright colorful hand-dyed wool fiber on board. She is also one of the first textile artist to incorporate digital rendering as composition guide. Much of her â€˜drawings with threadâ€™ is abstract built on repetition of small elements. The artist who lives and works in Oslo was educated at the Crafts and Arts School and Bergen Handicrafts School.
