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.

One of our favorite street artists, Valencia, Spain-based Hyuro, has completed a mural in Copenhagen, Denmark in conjunction with her solo show at ArtRebels from May 24th through June 15, 2013. In/Between will feature 17 original drawings highlighting Hyuro's interest in human interiority and the female body, often in relation to animals and natural elements. The exhibition is a subtle reflection on identity and freedom, both individually and collective. The items exhibited are all paper drawings of artworks that Hyuro has created as street pieces all over the world. All photography and information from our friend, Henrik Haven.

As we noted on the site earlier this week, our good friend, NYC-based Dennis McNett, has a show opening at MOHS in Copenhagen, Denmark starting this April 19, 2013. Remember, for the last 6 years the Wolfbat tribe has grown and performed ceremony, sacrifice, and spread the way of the Wolfbat throughout the North American continent. Artifacts from these ceremonies are presented here at Mohs in Copenhagen to show that Wolfbats are indeed real. Henrik Haven wait to check in...

Juxtapoz' good friend, Dennis McNett, will be in Copenhagen for a new exhibition at MOHS starting this April 19, 2013. There is a long description about the cryptic nature of the show, that you can read after the jump, but just know this: For the last 6 years the Wolfbat tribe has grown and performed ceremony, sacrifice, and spread the way of the Wolfbat throughout the North American continent. Europe, be ready.

Our friend Henrik Haven stopped by the new Clare Rojas exhibition at Galleri Nicolai Wallner in Copenhagen this past weekend. As we have seen in a past exhibition at PRISM in Los Angeles, the San Francisco-based artist has moved away from her more figurative folk works into more abstract, minimalist explorations in color and shape.

Copenhagen visual artist, Julie Nord, has created an amazing body of work that is playful and full of doll-like girls with big almond-shaped eyes in feminine dresses, cuteanimals and neat arabesques. She has representation from one of our favorite galleries, Copenhagen's V1.

Last week, one of our favorites, Husk Mit Navn (Remember My Name), opened a brand new body of work, One of These Days, at Copenhagen's V1 Gallery. The show is a big one, 13 paintings and 19 works on paper, and we are happy that Henrik Haven was able to head to the gallery and shoot the works in context of the space.
