Exhibitor's Artists:

  • Ole Aakjær  (+)

    Biography : Danish artist Ole Aakjær (born 1962) has been drawing and painting since he was able to hold a pencil. Originally, Aakjær’s dream was to work and develop as an artist within the cartoon medium. He was especially fascinated and intrigued by the experimental parts of the cartoon scene that unfolded in the late 1980s. Among sources of inspiration at the time were Jean Giraud (Moebius), Milo Manara, Enki Bilal and many more. In the mid-1980s, a collection of work by the artist was accepted by the publishing company Carlsen who at that time was the leading cartoon publishing company in Denmark. Ole Aakjær was later on trained as an illustrator and ran his own design office for a good period of years from 1992 onwards. Aakjær has won a wide range of competitions and distinctions and gained recognition as an innovator, designer and especially as an artist, and he can look back at a number of sold out exhibitions. His creative work is always performed in watercolor and tusch on paper - often in very large scale formats. Previously, he has experimented with acrylic and oil but it is on the turbulent ocean of the watercolor that he excels. His signature vibrant style with women with multilayered symbolism revealing their secrets are inspired by music, literature, films and photographs. The natural imperfections the artistic process leaves behind in the highly structured compositions unravel a very special world of wonder and admiration. Beauty and hidden messages. Aakjær portrays strong women that are sensual, alluring and untamed. Like constellations, Aakjær´s artwork shift in time and space, and require close attention to be unveiled by our own imagination. Despite his short time within the art business Ole Aakjær has already had more than 35 exhibitions in Denmark and abroad and the list of collectors wishing to get hold on a watercolor piece by the succesful artists is growing by numbers week after week. As of today Aakjær is represented in collections i

  • Niels Corfitzen  (+)

    Biography : Niels Corfitzen (born 1980) toys with light and abstraction to create surreal portraits. The abstract layers of paint strewn across his works appear as both analog and digital distortion, offering the viewer both a vulnerability and mystery to the figures he depicts. Often, his work plays on both outdoors backdrops and flashes of culture. Corfitzen is based in Copenhagen but was raised in Sweden and lived in England for a number of years. Corfitzen works in several layers, allowing the image to find him through a gradual back-and-forth motion. The work takes an interesting architectural turn in earlier works, playing less with abstraction and more with angles. Still, one of the artist’s greatest strengths carries through: Bold lighting decisions cast subjects as both exposed and alluring. All absorb in how the artist uses color and form to challenge with our expectations. Corfitzen is represented in respected private collections in Denmark and abroad and has had a good number of highly succesful exhibitions in Denmark and exhibited at fairs throughout the world.

  • Kinki Texas  (+)

    Biography : The raw, somewhat unrefined appearance of these heroes and anti-heroes is matched by the roughness of the painterly gesture with which they have been captured by the German artist on the canvas or the paper: there is no trace here of a meticulous painting style; instead the works, large-scale canvases in vibrant colors, have a crude, garish finish. The visual motifs in Kinki Texas´ universe are characterised by their reference to landmark history, psychology, culture and art history. The visual motifs are accompanied by written words, some of which have been sprayed on, others scratched or written with pen into the top layers of paint. The singing cowboys, warrior crusaders, bandaged partly skeletal figures) may appear to have been quickly dashed off, but have in fact been developed over a period of months if not longer. Their lengthy process of creation is only revealed on closer inspection, when the different stages of the picture’s evolution, it´s details, can gradually be traced. While Kinki Texas has a very particular theme and subject matter in mind when he begins working on his pictures, he also reacts to what happens during the painting process and day of work, with the result that the development of the images can take unexpected and surprising turns. He paints, sprays, writes, wipes and scrapes away until he reaches a state where any additional painterly touch would overload the image, but any missing one would make it seem unfinished. It is all about the right balance in the chaos. The heroic figures in “Kinki Texas Space” (this is what the artist calls his creative universe) which draws as much inspiration from the comic genre as it does from history books, employing means of depiction borrowed from graffiti and trash and punk culture as well as from centuries of history painting, their appearance ranges from slightly odd to truly bizarre and grim; some of them have a warlike and at times rather frightening demeanour; they confront the vi
