Streets: Brad Downey (Denmark)

After sharing some photos of Sam3’s pieces for the Public Art project in Horsens, Denmark, we now have some shots of another participant, Brad Downey. As opposed to the typical street artist, Downey’s work is more conceptual in nature and often takes advantage of existing urban elements that he exploits in which he sees natural irony or subtle metaphors. Take a look at the American artist working in the photos below, as well some of the completed interventions (three at the port and three in the center of town). Photo […]

Streets: Sam3 (Denmark)

After hitting up the Mediterranean coastline with some inventive murals, Spanish artist Sam3 headed to Denmark to participate in a new event. Located in the old Danish city of Horsens, the project Public Art saw the silhouette master get up twice at the port and once in the center of the town. Other artists scheduled to attend include Brad Downey, Escif, Pobel, Thomas Dambo, and Ornduvald so we’ll bring you more photos soon… Photo credit: Henrik Haven. Discuss Sam3 here.

Streets: El Mac (Denmark) – Part II

We already shared some photos with you of a large mural El Mac worked in while in town for his show at Galerie Wolfsen (covered), It turns out that was only the tip of the iceberg as the LA-based street artist also worked on a triptych piece for his fans in Denmark entitled Purity of Heart, taken from the popular book by Søren Kierkegaard – Purity of Heart is to Will One Thing. These three murals grace three sides of a tower in front of a recently renovated orphanage and […]

Preview: El Mac – “Sangre Nueva” @ Galerie Wolfsen

Coming up on May 16th, Galerie Wolfsen in Denmark will be opening a new solo show from the Los Angeles-based El Mac. For an artist whose work looks just as impressive in the gallery as on the streets, this will be his first solo show in Europe and first one since 2010 (covered). Take a look at a couple preview photos of large scale paintings he has been working on including one looks to be a negative image. There is also a short preview video that […]

Showing: Armsrock – “Should The Light Not Take Us” @ Galleri Profilen

At the Galleri Profilen in Denmark, Armsrock (interviewed) currently has a new body of work on display entitled Should The Light Not Take Us. Continuing to develop his gallery repertoire, the thoughtful street artist is working again in the same large-scale that impressed us during his showing at the Vejle Museum of Art back in November. More photos after the jump…

Videos: Andreas Gursky @ Louisiana Museum of Modern Art (Denmark)

The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, which despite its name is located in Denmark, is currently hosting 40 giant photographs and a number of smaller works created by the world-famous photographer Andreas Gursky. We last saw a large collection of his works back in 2010 in Los Angeles, and certainly recommend seeing in person this retrospective from the genius of large-format photography if you happen to be in the area. If not, take a look at the video above for a taste of what you are […]

Showing: Armsrock – “Impossible Society” @ Vejle Museum of Art

Back in August, we brought you some photos of the work that Armsrock (interviewed) was preparing for Impossible Society, his exhibition at the Vejle Museum of Art in Denmark. The show is now on view through December 4th and really shows a maturity in the Danish artist’s work as well the type of scale that he is painting in now. More photos after the jump…

Preview: Armsrock – “The Impossible Society” @ Vejle Museum of Art

We haven’t heard much from Armsrock (interviewed) since his light-infused showing in Vienna earlier this year. There’s a good reason for that as the Danish street artist has been focused on building an important new body of work for his show at the Vejle Museum of Art in his native country. The large soulful paintings appear to be some of his best to date and we look forward to seeing the full results of his hard work come the September 3rd opening of The Impossible Society. […]

Streets: Brad Downey in Lisbon (Crono Project)

Berlin-based American artist, Brad Downey, has been keeping himself rather busy lately. His first show in the Middle East, We Are Beginning: Personal Projects in Public Spaces, opened this week at Cuadro Fine Art Gallery in Dubai. In addition, Downey’s work features in the group show What Is Contemporary Art? which opened Friday at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Roskilde, Denmark. Later in March, he’s taking part in the group exhibition Wilde Zeichen at the Kunsthalle Krems museum in Krems, Austria. In a post […]
