Rock City Art is delighted to welcome Oyvind Svele to the ever expanding group of amazing photographers.
He is best known for his collaboration with R.E.M and the R.E.M. Stavanger photographs, which the band released worldwide as official R.E.M. Fine Art Merchandise available from their official site www.remhq.com.
His entire R.E.M. series also reached a new level of success when they ended up in Georgia Music Hall of Fame, Macon, Georgia, USA, but also in the Library & Archives department in the world's biggest rock museum, the Cleveland Rock 'n´ Roll Hall Of Fame, Cleveland, Ohio, USA.
In 2011 He became the first rock photographer in the world to be purchased by the Statoil Art Program in Norway, which at present time is exhibiting his concert photo series of R.E.M. - 'Pictures at a Concert' - at their headquarters.
