Studio Visit: Huskmitnavn

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). During the visit, we chatted about his career, his switch from graffiti to fine art, about the upsides and downsides of life in Copenhagen and found out few interesting details about his work and life philosophy.

Openings: Barry McGee & Todd James – “FUD” @ V1 Gallery

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 […]

Head over for a look if you are in around Copenhagen through October 25. Photo credit: Henrik Haven. Discuss Carl Krull here.

Studio Visits: Carl Krull – “Seismic” @ V1 Gallery

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. Situated at the top of an ancient building in Copenhagen overlooking the harbor, the impressive work space is a perfect setting to get the creative juices going and has indeed housed other artists throughout its history. Seismic is an appropriate title for Krull’s new work as he uses a very distinctive technique to produce his images […]
