The Art Studios

At the very top of the western tower of the City Hall there are three studios for in which visual artists can work. Several famous artists have worked here over the years, and the studios have been the place where many important and famous artwork decorations for the City of Oslo have been created.

The arrangement was passed by the City Council of Oslo in 1995 and gives artists the opportunity to use the studios free of charge, for periods of one to two years.

Artists may apply to use the studios as their work space every 2 years.

According to City Council resolutions, the studios shall be offered to:

  • Young visual artists who have recently completed their education within the field of arts (for up to 2 years)
  • Established visual artists residing in Oslo (for up to 2 years)
  • Foreign visual artists, preferentially from the Nordic and Baltic countries (for up to 1 year)
