COPENHAGEN-BASED ARTIST EXAMINES LIFE THROUGH TITLES PAINTED ON THE COVERS OF FICTIONAL SELF-HELP BOOKS TALKING ABOUT BIGGEST QUESTIONS AND FEARS.
What job did you want to do as a child?
I wanted to be a rock star. To be recognized for my personal expression.
When did you decide to dedicate yourself to art?
When I realized that I was able to reach far more people as an artist than as a psychotherapist.
What relationship do you want to create between your creations and the real world.
I want my works to have an unmistakable behavioral change effect initiated by the viewer himself.
Where do you usually get inspiration from?
From my surroundings, local or from media. I build my works on my observations of human behavior and repetitive stupidity and self-sabotage.
What makes you happy?
That my loved ones are happy.
Do you work alone or with someone?
I work alone. At some point I would like to collaborate, but I haven’t met the right one yet.
Are your works for sale? What was your first customer?
Yes, my works are for sale. I exhibit in galleries internationally and sell from my studio. My first costumer was a local art collector and gallerist.
What do you want to tell us about the next project?
I will continue to refine my expression but I’m very curious about installation and filmmaking.
Your strongest point.
That must be my imagination and ability to set personal boundaries, which can be both a blessing and a curse.
If I could know a person, living or dead, who would it be?
I would like to have written songs with John Lennon and witnessed Jesus’ miracles.
