Danish artist Troels Carlsen is inspired by the human condition and his work often revolves around our historical and biological heritage. Through a wide range of media, collage and illustration, he explores our relation to the animal world with, often times through scientific anatomical illustrations. His multi-level pieces combine elements of landscape, science and portraiture, and are arranged an a near poetic way.

Juxtapoz friend and San Francisco fine artist, Jason Jägel is set to open a new body of work at Galleri Christoffer Egelund in Copenhagen, Denmark this Friday, October 26, 2012. The Castle & Other Works is a series of paintings that originate as "blotter" paper: a base layer beneath other on-going paintings that naturally accrues random overpaint, test brush marks, notations, inattentive attention and text.

Using postcards that he obtains from restaurants and culture houses in Denmark, artist Amir Zainorin creates collaged postcard murals of famed leaders that currently reside on the face of major currency. George Washington, Queen Elizabeth, and Mao Zedong get the treatment in a very odd, but rather creative series of portraits from the Malaysian-born artist.

Photographer Henrik Haven went to check it out for us...

We have shown you this project before, but not these images. Choose what hue or tint you would like to view the world in. The rooftop at the Aros Museum in Aarthus, Denmark permanently hosts this circular rainbow walkway designed by Olafur Elliasson. At night, the installation is lit up from inside by spotlights embedded in the floor.

If you ever find yourself traveling around Denmark, and get yourself to the island of Zealand, you will be surprised to see a mural by Spanish muralist, ARYZ, freshly painted on a brick building. As photographer Henrik Haven told us, "Before his piece for the Galore festival, the Spanish street artist traveled an hour away from Copenhagen to Næstved.. the piece is part of Næstved Youth School of Art and decoration project Næstved Art City."

Aryz is currently in the process of adding color to some bare brick in Copenhagen, Denmark. The artist is participating in one of the many street art festivals going on around the globe, this one being the Galore Festival. From here, it looks like an image of a man getting choked by a woman, although it could be a passionate hug from behind? Completed mural coming soon!
