Varied imagery
Finn Christensen expressed himself in a naturalistic visual language in the late 1940s and beyond into the 1950s. In terms of content, he visited the surreal. In the 1960s and 1970s, he combines geometric and organic forms and the expression becomes more abstract. Christensen attracted particular attention with his imaginative, abstracted serigraphs and etchings.

Finn Christensen had several decoration commissions, including at the Rikshospitalet (1964), Oslo municipal ambulance (1966), the churches at Lambertseter (1967) and Åssiden in Drammen (1968), Ullevål hospital and Aker hospital (1969), Kreditkassen in Oslo (1971) , and the cruise ship Royal Viking Star (1972).
