My artist alias is Helt Sort (Danish for “Completely Black”) and I was born in 1963 in Copenhagen. As award-winning designer and art director I am (from 2016) a very engaged and active artist with a strong focus on modern contemporary pop art with a twist of surrealism. Creating and sharing art is my mission; my visions, my passion.
Drawing and painting school, technical drawing, graphic design education and masters degree in marketing and advertising.
I am a great admirer of Banksy. The brilliant understated grafitti motives and the conceptual approach. As a former advertising man one can only give a high five for all this that goes up in a higher unity. Danish Olafur Eliasson is also fantastic. His installations can take your breath away. In a completely different genre, German Daniel Richter. He tells stories with power, painting pictures which is about the world we know and live in. The paintings are about policies, sex, music, ecstasy, violence and conflict etc. Altogether three very different artists, but they all have a constant quest and search for excellence in common.
