Daniel Jensen 1972

Lives in Stockholm (Sweden). Works in Stockholm (Sweden).
Represented by:


Daniel Jensen (1972) lives and works in Stockholm. Jensen’s practice spans painting, sculpture and drawing and explores questions about our contemporary, popular culture, film, literature and a nature in decline. His works are filled with abstract and figurative elements that do not have mutual relation in a logical narrative sense. A patchwork of references and techniques along with myths gives life to a series of characters and a personal universe. This universe has the semblance of a depraved fairytale where humour and deep sincerity are entwined and unconstrained, placing the spectator in an odd state of laughter and contemplation.
