Street Art // Thursday, June 25, 2015
The 5th show on Søren Solkær's SURFACE world tour opened Friday, June 12 at Øksnehallen in central Copenhagen. This exhibition covers a 3.500 square meter area and features 122 portraits in large formats. The portraits will be hung in a network of "streets" - resembling walls of an imaginary city. In the week leading up to the opening, six international and highly esteemed artists were invited to create large-scale murals in the streets of Copenhagen. The artist are: Conor Harrington (UK), ROA (Belgium), Borondo (Spain), DALeast (China), Maya Hayuk (US) and HuskMitNavn (DK). They all produced murals in the Vesterbro area of Copenhagen, that is also the home of the exhibition venue.

Morning. Top of the morning. Day break. Breaking sleep, comfort and spirit. Forcing yourself to perform with night and sleep in your blood and guts. Performing mundane morning rituals. Showering, toast, tea, teeth, coffee, kids… KIDS, clothes, packing lunch, packing kids, kids unpacking, keys, keys, keys. Transition, transit, traffic jam, walk, bus, metro, bicycle, road rage, type A and type B personalities in full conflict. A - Good morning B - what’s so fucking good about it?! Snowed in, crystal clear spring sky, coming home when the norm rises, newspaper, sunrise, first at work, morning swim, oatmeal and colleagues.

Creating playful looking characters and bubbly letters, Copenhagen’s own Huskmitnavn creates work that is easily digestible and safe to put on your children’s room walls. He’s been making stuff and probably making people smile.

We are huge fans of the work of Danish artist HuskMitNavn, and have featured him on the site and in our print edition over the past decade. Now we get something for the holidays, Offline, a new book by HuskMitNavn. Featuring 92 drawings from 2012-2013 originally published online and now put together in the book, the drawings present a mix of everyday incidents seen from odd angles and other twisted ideas from the corners of HuskMitNavn’s mind.

We have covered the work of Denmark's Huskmitnavn on the site and in the magazine before, and he is always busy with numerous projects and exhibitions going on at once. Currently, there is a large exhibition of Huskmitnavn's work at the Kos Museum in Denmark, spanning the many styles and mediums that the Copenhagen artist is known for. Nothing makes you smile like a good Husk sculpture. Remember, Huskmitnavn = RememberMyName.

Two artists that we continuously get excited about, Horfe and HuskMitNavn came together in Sweden at Gallery Steinsland Berliner to display their collective talents.
