André Enger Aas (b. 1987, Stavern, Norway) is an artist based in Tromsø. Aas received a bachelors degree from The Academy of Contemporary Art in Trondheim and a Masters degree from Tromsø Academy of Contemporary Art in 2015. Since 2017 he has been situated and working at Loftet Atelierfellesskap at Tromsø Kunstforening.

He works within installation, image and sculpture. Aas works with scavenged, stolen and found material, focusing on these materials already inherent representational value. He mixes the familiar with the abstract to build a visual narrative that tells tales which distorts history with fiction, science with spirituality and touches upon universal sensibilities such as loss, identity and our past. Aas’s figurative sculptures and installations are composed of a variety of materials and elements, resembling collages of everyday objects and artifacts.

Currently Aas is working with on-going projects revolved around public and private space and ownership.

In the Autumn and winter of 2019, he presented an exhibition inside The Arctic Agency for Environmental Research and Artistic Practice.
