Fredrik Raddum is educated at the The National Academy of Art in Oslo. He works with sculpture, installation, photo and performance related journeys. He has exhibited at various spaces since 2001.

The sculptural universe of Norwegian artist Fredrik Raddum is characterized by a unique combination of humor and somberness, irony and social critique, provocativeness and philosophical insight. The vast majority of works in Raddum’s longstanding production make use of surprise as the primary tool: At an instant, we are both amazed and puzzled. However, the first impression is always followed by the need to look closer and in doing so, the viewer soon realizes that each work has much more than mere shock and confusion to offer.

Raddum’s preferred subject is the frailty of the psyche of modern man as well as his search for identity and meaning in a frantic, fragmented and often incomprehensible now. His sculptures can thus be understood as physical manifestations of our common feelings, thoughts and shifting states of mind. Essentially, Fredrik Raddum is a tireless diagnostician of society, who delivers his analysis in bronze, plastic, colored lights, stainless steel and pastel colors.

Raddum has exhibited at Aaros Museum of Modern Art (Denmark), National Gallery of Art (Denmark), Kistefos Museum (Norway), Pori Art Museum (Finland) and Museum of Installation (UK) amongst many others. His works are represented in many public collections such as The Norwegian National Gallery, National Gallery of Art (Denmark), Aaros Museum of Modern Art(Denmark), Gothenburg Museum of Art (Sweden), Norwegian Art Council, Vestas, Aker-Solutions, Norvestor Equity, Telenor and Equinor.

Represented at Gallery Brandstrup Oslo and Hans Alf Gallery Copenhagen.
