RUNE CHRISTENSEN

Available Artwork (via artsy.net)


Last year we have shown Danish artist Rune Christensen twice as part of group shows in Hamburg, and in 2017 we finally presented his first solo exhibition in Germany. We are pleased to have shown Christensen’s outstanding combination of painting, illustration and graffiti at the heliumcowboy artspace.  

Masked women with tattoos all over their body focus the viewer. They are sitting on stairs or on the ground surrounded by painted flowerpots. On the next level Christensen covers these bodies, objects and the backgrounds with patterns and delicate illustrations, using colour schemes and forms rooting in graffiti culture.

Besides the classical spray paint and acrylics, Christensen has recently started to add industrial sealing compound, achieving a relief-like structure in his paintings. The results are detailed and elaborated portraits with depth and texture and a truly mysterious quality.
