My name is Emma Arnold and I founded The Institute for Art and Environment (ARTENVI) in 2009 as a broad platform for my diverse projects, all of which touch on intersections of art and environment.

I am an artist and urban/cultural geographer, originally from Montréal, Canada and currently living in Oslo, Norway. I have a diverse academic background, on a spectrum from the natural sciences to the humanities. I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Sociology and Human Geography at the University of Oslo.

My arts practice includes illustration and painting, street/urban art, and photography. I am part of the SOMA art collective in Oslo.
