Danish photographer Søren Solkær opened last Friday June 12 the 5th show for the SURFACE project’s world tour, this time at Øksnehallen in central Copenhagen.
The exhibition features 122 portraits in large formats of some of the most renowned street artist nowadays covering an area of almost 3.000 m2. The artists are photographed in staged settings between them and their work under a cinematic lighting and making use of different accessories and masks in order to examine the connection between the artist, his work and the urban space, always carrying Solkær’s personal style.
In addition to the main exhibition the project invited a series of international and local artists like Conor Harrigton, Maya Hayuk, Daleast,Borondo and of course HuskMitNavn to create large-scale murals in the Vesterbro area as part of OUTDOOR SURFACE. The result is prett impressive.
The event was possible thanks to the collaboration with DGI-Byen, V1 Gallery og the municipality of Copenhagen. The murals can be found at:
Borondo – Vesterbrogade 60 i baggården
Conor Harrington – Tullinsgade 21
Huskmitnavn – Tullinsgade 1
