Art on ice

The Norwegian artist Cassius Fadlabi (born 1975), who today lives and works in Luleå, bases his artwork on Sudanese traditions that honour people who have died. The work, with both patterns and calligraphy, can be seen on the windbreaks along the ice track.
Fadlabi dedicates it to his mentor, the Norwegian author Nils Amund Raknerud.

Fallabi's artwork is part of the Luleå Biennial, and a collaboration between Konstfrämjandet Norrbotten and Luleå Kommun.
