About mikael jensen

I started drawing and painting because I had a dream. A woman that looked like a drug addict asked not for dope or money, but for pen and paper. I bought that for her the following Saturday and I lend her my hand...and right off...she drew. It worked!!!!
One year later I was in the final round of the very best censored in Denmark. I kept on, and was awarded silver in Lapaz - a big biennale with almost 2000 artists participating from all over the world. The Nordic counsel sposored med for an exhibision on The Faroe Islands... In Nice I was exhibited and in Sweden too.
I only work with inner images on the borderline between the inner and out reality. I use a lot of in depth symbolism. I always present at future in my work.
My style has picked itself... I cant change it, and I dont want to. I truly invite but into a world og humor, wit and symbolism. You will find new stories in all of them again and again.
My art is mostly for people who really think and wonder. I dont design, I paint and draw art.
