Eirik Storesund (b. 1988)

is a New York based Old Norse philologist, writer, and artist from the salt drenched coasts of Rogaland, Southwest Norway.

Besides his iconoclastic conquest to further the discourse on Norse myth and culture, his work tends to revolve around the numinous and burlesque intersections of perceived contrasts, such as tradition and modernity, the real and the imaginary, culture and nature, philia and phobia. Heavily inspired by the mindset and myths of archaic societies, he believes they are integral to making sense of the human condition: For the future there must be a past.
