A K Dolven (born 1953) is one of Norway's most widely known artists internationally. She lives in London and the Lofoten Islands, and her paintings, video works, films and photographs have been displayed not only in important European galleries of latest contemporary art but also in leading museums and art hall venues in different parts of the world.

Dolven chooses her medium according to the issue she is dealing with but painterly compositions are often applied in her photographs and videos. Her works may contain art-historical references, which, however, do not necessarily have to be recognized in order to understand them. Classic compositions stress the universality of the subject matter while contemporary clothing or music used connects the works to the present time. Observation of gestures, strong presence and time consumed all reveal the particularity and importance of the depicted moment that first seemed to be just an ordinary scene from everyday life.
