Fred Buljo - KEIINO fan art/study

Fred Buljo is one of the three members of Norwegian band KEiiNO. They became well-known after Eurovision 2019, and while they didn't win the contest, they won the public televotes and came in sixth place overall with their hit 'Spirit In The Sky'. Fred is Sami and he started his career as a Sami rapper. With KEiiNO, he joiks (Sami vocal tradition), raps and sings, and co-writes the songs. Fred was also an MP in the Norwegian Sami Parliament, and a Sami kindergarten teacher, with a degree in Pedagogy and Psychology.

This study uses a still from the music video for 'Spirit in the Sky' rather than a photograph. Photographs are often good quality, whereas videos on YouTube can be blurry when paused. I figured that I could learn and challenge myself more by using a still in a video than simply referencing a photograph. Not sure if that is the case but I thought why not try it.

I paused the video around 1:33 for the image, if anyone is curious.
