1945, København, Danmark / USA

Born October 10, 1945 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Edsberg had his debut as a painter in 1966 at The Association for National art, Charlottenborg, Copenhagen. During the sixties, seventies and eighties Edsberg held exhibitions in his homeland Denmark, throughout Scandinavia, Europe, U.S.A., Mexico, Japan and Australia. His work is represented in numerous private and public collections around the world.

In 1977 Professor Alexandre Cirici Pellicer, president of The International Association of Art Critics said: "Soren Edsberg contributes in a very personal way to contemporary art," and The Council of The Miró Foundation refers to Soren Edsberg as "a renewer of abstract art in Europe."

In 1987 Soren Edsberg moved with his family to U.S.A. He joined the faculty at Brigham Young University as an adjunct professor. In the nineties Edsberg produced and directed a series of medical/educational videos for hospitals, schools, universities and government agencies in U.S.A., Canada, Mexico and the European Union. Among those acclaiming Edsberg's educational productions are U.S. Senators Orrin G. Hatch, Edward M. Kennedy, former U.S. secretary of education Terrell H. Bell, and former assistant U.S. secretary for health James O. Mason who says that the video series have made "a significant contribution to health education."

Edsberg shared his efforts during the last part of the nineties with the Baby Video Library series, his photography, and preparations for the Hope Galleries. His photography project brought him to numerous National Parks taking thousands of photographs with a special interest in nature's details and light. The first Hope Gallery opened in Provo, Utah in 2001, leading to additional locations in Park City, Utah and the main location in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Although Edsberg has been a collector of art for nearly fifty years, he has spent most of the last twelve years in Europe researching, tracking and collecting art for the Hope Galleries and his ongoing private collection, and resuming with his own works of art for future display.
