Anders Gjennestad aka Strøk, is an author of surreal visual poetry. In this mural, an array of figures stride along the wall, casting long shadows in Strøk's trademark style. Using multi-layer stencils make the figures look life like but also gravity defying.

His multi-layered stencil work contains extraordinary detail creating photorealistic images that play with both our perception and perspective in equal measures. His characters seem to inhabit an alternative universe where gravity seemingly doesn’t exist and time is frozen. Through a tear in reality the viewer gains a fleeting glimpse of other possibilities or possibilities of the “other,” physical and supernatural.

Strøk’s characters are often juxtaposed and placed specifically against the ruination of factory walls, rusted metal and decaying plasterwork
