Geir NustadI was born in Tromsø, in the north of Norway in 1984.
Here I grew up and lived the first part of my life being socially and political active, and since 2002 working with art and cultural projects .
In 2006 I moved to Kosta, Sweden, to begin my studies to become a glassblower at the Kosta Glascenter (one of Europe`s most renowned glass schools).

I graduated In 2009 with promising results and continued the search for my own expression with glass. That same year I started studying in the Glass Department at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, where I graduated with a BFA in the summer of 2012.
I am currently living and working in Amsterdam.

My practice as an artist stretches from drawings and paintings, to objects, sculptures and installations, that consist mainly of glass, either as a sculptural medium or in the direction of design/applied-arts.
I am trying to stretch the use of glass as a material and to create a bridge between craft, design and fine arts, creating a deeper connection between the object or sculpture and the spectator.
