Christian Carlsen

Born 1974

Christian has studied at The Art School since 2006.

He finds his inspiration in relationships that occupy him, for example his hometown Copenhagen, but it can also be motives that evoke a special feeling in him. For example, the joy of eating ice cream.

It is often such a spontaneous interest in an event, a place or phenomenon that underlies Christian's motifs that he most often wants photos of and which forms the basis for his images.

Christian has a very sensuous line. He often draws blind drawings, in which he depicts the contours of the object sensitively sensory.

Christian likes to experiment with many techniques and forms of expression. Where the primary ones are acrylic on canvas, where he draws his motif up with pen.
