Ole Ahlberg is a contemporary Danish artist best known for his appropriation of Hergé's iconic characters from The Adventures of Tintin. Often dark and erotic, Ahlberg's paintings and prints appropriate Dutch vanitas still lifes, biblical subject matter, and trompe l'oeil techniques to create works in which the nature of representation is questioned. Born in 1949 in Denmark, he has received significant attention for his works, including a notorious lawsuit from Tintin's copyright holder Moulinsart. The artist has held exhibitions at galleries such as Art Copenhagen and Gallery L’Oeil in Brussels. Ahlberg lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark.
