Releases: Huskmitnavn – “Papirarbejde” (Paperworks)” Book

For the last several years, Huskmitnavn (featured) has devoted time to creating and sharing his witty drawings on paper. Recently, he collected some of the personal favorites into a new book titled Papirarbejde (Paperworks). Between working on paintings, murals, illustrating, and the occasional graffiti adventure, the Copenhagen-based artist has spent the last few years creating little paper works almost daily. Often folding, bending, and tearing the surface in order to achieve the desired outcome, the idea is to get the strongest possible effect with the minimal possible intervention. These ink on […]

Je Suis Paris

In the aftermath of the horrible attacks that happened on Friday 13th in Paris, the art community once again responded with what it does best – transferring the emotions and messages in an original visual form. Whether they are French or not, they all have some sort of special connection with the “capital of the arts.“ From Danish master of paper drawings and folds, Huskmitnavn (top photo), Paris-based Seth Globepainter who painted one of his kid characters writing Parisian motto “Fluctuat nec mergitur (Tossed but not sunk)”, to legendary mastermind behind the Obey […]

Previews: HuskMitNavn – “Morning” @ V1 Gallery

Graffiti writer, painter and illustrator, HuskMitNavn, is opening his solo show, entitled Morning, with the V1 gallery in Copenhagen on March 27th. Known for his witty comic-like work, often ridiculing and commenting on everyday situations, the Danish artist created a whole show themed around mornings and morning rituals. Through his flat visual language, using clean lines and a clear color palette, he immortalized recognizable morning routines into paintings, collages and drawings, creating a refreshing body of work with an original and common theme. Though some of the pieces might appeal […]
