Steve Powers has freshly completed a new mural in Copenhagen that pays tribute to the Danish icon, Hans Christian Anderson, whose stories many Americans and Copenhageners grew up with. Located in front of the U.S. Embassy in Copenhagen, this piece was inspired from Andersen’s fairy tale The Red Shoes,a story about vanity and redemption, themes that easily connect the 19thcentury with the 21stcentury.

Carl has also developed a technique using a tube wrapped in paper to create his drawings in a moving car! Watch a video after the jump...

We previewed Joram Roukes' newest exhibition, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, with work based on the Smashing Pumpkins seminal double disc LP, at B15 Gallery in Copenhagen last week, but our friend Henrik Haven stopped by the opening with Roukes to take a few shots. As the gallery noted, the artist ""orchestrated the works with respect for the bands original idea, which has been to instill fans with both sadness and hope."

Danish artist Troels Carlsen will be opening a solo exhibition entitled Mute Appeal at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen this Friday the 7th. The show will include 10 antique lithographs of stern looking gentlemen all modified seamlessly, de-constructed, now with wooden structures morphing with their heads. Displacement and vertigo are reoccurring themes in Mute Appeal, with the works both familiar and strange. Troels will be featured in the August 2013 issue of Juxtapoz Magazine.
