Profile

Jakob Ingvorsen (B. 1983) is a danish illustrator and fine artist living and working in Copenhagen, Denmark In 2007 he graduated as an illustrator from University of The Arts London and since then he has been illustrating for magazines and books. Furthermore he has been working with paintings - which have been exhibited in Copenhagen and London. His visual expression is a mix of urban inspiration, pop art and classical painting techniques. With a broad palette of painting methods in mind and a great knowledge of styles he creates new expressions on paper, canvas and walls. He works in basically all mediums – for example paint, graffitti, watercolor and pencils - but his work always has a strong foundation in drawing. Therefore it is possible to do a huge variation of visual styles. Digital work is also a possibility. When dealing with subjects and themes the artwork takes a poetic narrative and wants to be positive and light in its communication. Visual symbols are putted together in new ways that construct stories that might take form as small puzzles for the viewer to figure out. Jakob has been working as an artist for 15 years selling paintings, making murals and doing commisioned illustrations for magazines amongst others. Furthermore he has been making a cartoons and done several childrens books in close cooperation with authors. He has been working for danish, swedish, german, english and american clients – for example Cambridge University Newspaper and Amnesty International. He has exhibited more than 30 times.
