80 x 60 cm, acrylic on canvas, 2022
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. He just released a new body of work with Guy Hepner Editions last month and is preparred for his upcoming solo shows in Paris, New York and Berlin.
