About the artist

Mette Vangsgaard (b. 1968, Denmark), currently lives and work in Copenhagen. She graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 1996, and in 2011 she was awarded the 3-Year Working Grant from The Danish Arts Council.

Mette Vangsgaard awakens a poetic realism, a humoristic but profound observation of the everyday life and an exploration of man’s existential cohesion with our surroundings. Her characteristic experimental, eclectic and unpolished style is defined by her paintings, the base of the artist’s graphical world. Mette Vangsgaard explores the painting techniques with an open, widespread mind, whether it is in perspective, narrative collages created from anything from magazine clippings and colorful prints, album covers, wood, plastic, metal, wallpaper and fur, or in her ceramic sculptures or installations.

Mette Vangsgaard is among else represented at KUNSTEN Museum of Modern Art, Vejen Museum of Art, and CLAY The Danish Museum of Ceramic Arts.
