Anders Ramm Bråten is a 25 year old London-based graphic designer and artist, hailing from the city of Oslo, Norway. He writes: ‘Having had an interest and passion for the craft of illustration from an early age, I’ve always found myself the most in sync when drawing. I started to spread cutouts of my illustrations throughout the cities of Oslo and London in 2021, under the moniker of “Beessoh”, which is an ongoing homage to Sagene, my all-time favourite borough of Oslo. If you ever plan to go there, let me know. These “Beessoh”-endeavours have led me to connect with other like minded individuals, and to my enjoyment the moniker keeps on working its magic with every piece I hang up. This is a more of a stationary edition, though, and I hope you enjoy it. ‘
