Henriksens source material is the landscape he lives and works in, Lofoten. He works with images that have references in this and it is about both a physical and a mental landscape. As a kind of diary, every day has its impression and history. Visually, it becomes abstract stories.
Henriksen was born in 1965 and lives and works in Svolvær, a town in Lofoten in northern Norway. From 1983-1985 he studied basic arts and crafts in Lofoten and then continued his education 1988-1990 at the National Institute of Arts and Design in Bergen.
His public works include decorations for Thon Hotel Lofoten, the SAS Hotel Svalbard, Oslo Courthouse, the Coastal Administration Kabelvåg, Leknes Airport, the University of Tromsø and the Central Hospital in Karlstad. He has been awarded many scholarships, including Nordland County's Travel Scholarship, the Arcus Scholarship, the Norwegian Cultural Council's debutant grant and the Statens Reise / Studie Scholarship.
