About de Hansi

Zonation paintings, a word I have coined, focus on integrating and balancing the four elements: lines, tones, colours and emotion.

I follow a figurative-abstract-expressionist painting philosophy inspired by Cézanne, Kleé and followers. Motives: Copenhagen cityscapes, croquis, stilleben. Artworks in acrylics, oil, aqua oil, multicoloured chalk, aquarelle and pencils.

Artist podcast (Fr):


I am educated as a civil engineer in hydrology and water resource management. I was a principal investigator in the EU research project adaptive management under uncertainty, NEWATER 2006-09, and work as project leader and researcher in several national and international research projects (NORDRESS, ANDROID, GHANAQUA, CATALYST etc.).
My inspiration come from the freshwater cycle, rivers and water in many different perspectives, including climate change adaptation, resilience and territorial governance, including the human turn (Antropocene), where I have a master in Psychology of Organisation. As a painter I am an autodidact.
