Laust Højgaard

140 x 100 cm, acrylic on linen, 2023

Danish artist, Laust Højgaard (b. 1989), paints grotesque yet humorous contemporary figurative art. Laust’s approach is impulsive, working directly on the canvas from imagination. Building layers with semi-dried paint to create depth and intriguing details, his work captivates and draws the eye. With a background in classical drawing, croquis and graphic design, Laust has pushed himself to detach from the “classic approach” and develop his own way of working.
