Mormor is a Danish artist whose artistic work is molded by the people and spaces around him.
Based in Copenhagen, Mormor started his career in an early age in the streets of his hometown of Aarhus. Today a lot of his pieces can be experienced on canvas or paper and is exhibited in Berlin, New York, Munich as well as in Copenhagen.
He also works with large scale wall paintings spreading widely over public and private spaces primarily in Denmark but also in the whole of Northern Europe. Mormor believes that art is very valuable to life not only to the artist himself but to humans in general. He contributes to this by working with people, in spaces sorrounding by people telling their stories.
The style of drawing is young, fresh and easy to recognize as an illustration by the hand of Mormor with its very personal expression: Buildings, cities, figures and several other images appear with the well-known line in various medias. With a playfull approach he keeps on challenging his media, exploring several techniques of painting and printing and never ending the process of constantly renewing himself as an artist.
“I love to experiment and play with materials. To me it's essential to have some really strong ideas behind the pieces and try it out whether it's an illustration or a technique. I work with a lot of different people from private buyers to educational insitutions and art institutions. I suppose I just have this strong interest in people, creating art to the people and love to visualize their stories in my pieces.”
