Arvid "Chris" Kristoffersen
Kalispell artist Arvid “Chris” Kristoffersen, 80, was last year voted the second best fairy-tale artist in Norway. As a result, a painting of his father’s blacksmith shop, which Kristoffersen created when he was just 10, was featured in a calendar (pictured) to support a Norwegian music group.

Kalispell artist Arvid “Chris” Kristoffersen, 80, left Norway
for the United States in 1952, but his hometown and native country
have not forgotten him.
A little over a year ago, he was honored by art lovers in Kragero,
Telemark, Norway, who know their trolls.
