Colorful Pinups by Tine Helleshøj

March 26, 2014
  'Sensual, clever, rock’n roll – are all words that have been used to describe Copenhagen based Tine Helleshøj’s bold, individualistic style... Working in mixed media such as gouache, spray paint, stencils and oilpainted characters– Helleshøj’s nostalgic pop images of sexy pin up girls and macho men set against bold and colorful detailed backgrounds exude an aesthetic that is both joy-filled and mesmerizing at the same time. She weaves her characters’ stories spontaneously, eschewing obvious social statements and instead focusing on captivating imagery that brings a smile to the viewer’s lips. She is not inspired by any certain direction in art but finds her inspiration in urban life.'
