   In his view, painters and artists in general should be craftsmen. He is a part of the traditional figurative school of painting, which is related to the kitsch movement of Odd Nerdrum and the retrogard movement. But unlike Nerdrum and according to the retrogrades, Kjernstad still believes that traditional and figurative artists should claim the term "art" rather than use the name "kitsch" for their work.
