«Schjelderup, an ardent devotee of graphic novels, comics, film, metal music and fine art, merges all of these creative forms in his artistic output. […] through its title, takes a jab at the now ubiquitous term ‹Outsider Art›. The label has most often been used to describe artworks produced outside of the boundaries of official culture, usually by institutionalized persons without artistic training. As a practicing artist with autism and a student of fine art, Schjelderup straddles two worlds and, through his work, presents a unique and unfiltered perspective on neurotypical norms. Taken all together, his sketchbooks, drawings, and paintings create an entire world of his own making; fantastical and yet eerily accurate depictions of life as he understands it.»
