For several years, the popular and controversial artist Hariton Pushwagner was homeless and addicted to drugs. Now, he experiences a major artistic breakthrough in Norway as well as internationally. "Pushwagner" presents a personal and analytical view into Pushwagner's artistic world and biography. The book also portrays his way of thinking, his social criticism and his paradoxical personality. But it is also the story of how the close collaboration with the author Axel Jensen influenced his artistic development and belief in himself. This is the first time Pushwagner's story, accompanied by a wide selection of artwork and photos, is published and thus made available to a larger public.
Boken handler om Terje Brofos alias Hariton Pushwagners liv og kunstverden. Den gir et bilde av hans strabasiøse liv som kunstner, uteligger og narkoman, et liv som langt på vei har vært innhyllet i anekdoter og myter. Sentralt i boken står samarbeidet med Axel Jensen og hovedverkene En dag i familien Manns liv og Apokalypse, og billedromanen Soft City.
