GAY KID STIG-WERNER

I grew up in Lillehammer. As a kid I lived with my mother and grandparents. My grandfather worked as a caretaker at the Lillehammer City Collection of Paintings. He had an apartment in the museum building and it was quite an adventure to live there. After closing hours I could cycle around, all on my own, on my tricycle enjoying the art collection. You should think I would have grown-up to be a painter – but I didn’t. Have you seen the movie “The Journey to the Christmas Star”? The man playing the evil count – that’s me!!!!

GAY KIDS STIG-WERNER

Jeg er oppvokst på Lillehammer. Da jeg var liten bodde jeg og mamma hos besteforeldrene mine. Bestefar arbeidet som vaktmester på malerisamlingen på Lillehammer. Det heter Lillehammer kunstmuseum nå. Bestefar hadde vaktmesterleilighet i museet. Det var artig. For etter stengetid kunne jeg sykle rundt omkring på trehjulssykkelen min, helt for meg selv, og titte på maleriene. Du skulle nesten tro jeg at jeg ble maler når jeg ble stor, men det ble jeg ikke. Har du sett filmen ”Reisen til julestjernen”? Den onde greven – det er meg!!!!

He had an apartment in the museum building and it was quite an adventure to live there. After closing hours I could cycle around, all on my own, on my tricycle enjoying the art collection. You should think I would have grown-up to be a painter – but I didn’t. Have you seen the movie “The Journey to the Christmas Star”? The man playing the evil count  - that’s me!!!!”
