Henning Ludvigsen was born in the town of Holmestrand in Norway. At 16 he focused his love of art by enrolling in a traditional art school. Graduating two years later he joined the world of advertising and after only 9 years had reached the position of Art Director in a medium sized advertising agency.
In 2003 an ongoing personal project offered the opportunity for a career change and thus Henning moved to Athens, Greece where he was working as a partner and Art Director of Aventurine S.A. developing the MMORPG called Darkfall Online. He moved back to Norway summer 2011.
