Pushwagner. The Iconic Norwegian pop artist

Enter the world of Pushwagner, one of Norway's most celebrated contemporary artists, beatnik and bad boy extraordinaire. 

In true gonzo style the directors have followed an artist shrouded in local myth as he tries to win back the rights to his own artwork. A film about being in control. And about losing it.
