On April 1st, Galleri Benoni in Copenhagen will be opening a new solo from Joram Roukes entitled POV. For this exhibition, the Dutch artist has put together a series of mostly larger oil paintings featuring his observations of everyday life but through the prism of his imagination turn into surreal landscapes. Put together in almost a collaged fashion, these fragmented elements come together to form a cohesive composition that provide an “engaging narrative characterized by beauty, chaos and decay.” Discuss Joram Roukes here.

We stopped by the studio of Danish artist HuskMitNavn only a few days after the closing of his solo show Morning (covered) and few days before he started working on his mural for the Surface project (covered).

HuskMitNavn (RememberMyName) entered the world of art after being active in graffiti for many […]

On May 28th, V1 gallery in Copenhagen, or V1 contemporary art center as the artists renamed it for the occasion, hosted a preview of FUD, a two men show featuring Barry McGee & Todd James. Being long time friends, this was the second time they exhibited together in Copenhagen. Matching their visual language that often celebrates ridiculousness and nonsense in any form, the show was titled with a made up word that can be found in James’ earlier works. Without being pretentious about the depth and meaning […]

After a studio visit with Carl Krull, it was gratifying to see his new works displayed on the walls of V1 Gallery last week. Creating his imagery through a pattern of repetitive lines, the fresh pieces were collectively entitled Seismic and sometimes formed faces almost looking like pin art or other more complex compositions. Head over for a look if you are in around Copenhagen through October 25. Photo credit: Henrik Haven. Discuss Carl Krull here.
Ahead of Carl Krull’s current show at V1 Gallery, which opened over the weekend, we paid a visit to his studio to take a look at the new work.

Seismic is an appropriate title for Krull’s new work as he uses a very distinctive technique to produce his images […]
