Zven Balslev (b. 1977, Denmark) currently lives and works in Copenhagen. He is a graduate MFA from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2006.
Zven Balslev, who has focused his artistic practice on drawing and graphic art, has developed over time a characteristic and unique style. Underground comics, psychedelic horror and surreal motifs serve as the first spark of inspiration, where the use of black and white enhances his original graphic pictorial universe.
Balslev’s works are rich and complex, colliding both mediums and themes: from the aesthetics of graphic fanzines to satirical sultriness and naivistic cartoons. Thus, his drawings show strong, dark yet humorous imagery.
