Mid-June Art: The many faces of Bjørn

Bjørn Wiinblad
opens June 13; Arken, Skovvej 100, Ishøj; arken.dk

Bjørn Wiinblad’s art has many different faces.
You might have seen some of them in Danish homes, on decorative plates and cups, or on the pages of books – but you have never seen as many as Arken have gathered for this exhibition.

Giving you a break from the current Scandinavian minimalism trend, his work is intricate and colourful and often has arabesques filling out the backgrounds.

You’ll be able to follow Wiinblad’s development, honing his craft through sculptures, illustrations, ceramics and more.
