I am super exited to check out the Bjørn Wiinblad exhibition. His ceramics and art has been pretty much a part of most Danes interior including my own home growing up! Lately his drawings can be seen in modern versions of ceramics and interior accessories and he's definitely become "IN" again and he continues to inspire with his colourful drawings.
The exhibition runs until January 2016 and is a must if you're in Denmark!
For those interested in seeing his home as well (as artists homes are usually quite interesting) , it is possible to visit his home as well: http://en.bjornwiinblad.dk/
** Please note the house is temporarily closed until the end of the exhibition in January 2016!
"Triangular noses and almond eyes surrounded by intricate curlicues and intense colours. For some people Bjørn Wiinblad evokes memories of tiled tables and mantelpieces, for others his colourful flourishes and luxuriant forms are the essence of retro-cool. ARKEN Museum of Modern Art presents the most comprehensive exhibition ever of this unique figure in Danish art, design and artist-craftsmanship.
The wide-ranging artist Bjørn Wiinblad (1918-2006) was a phenomenal image-maker and imaginative storyteller. Including drawings, posters, gouaches, one-off ceramics, stage design and huge tapestries, the exhibition shows new and surprising perspectives on a Wiinblad, who we all know, and demonstrates a modern wide-ranging artist, who was much more than plaques."
Here's one of our Wiinblad ceramics that we've had in our home since the 80's :)
And here's some of the new home decor accessories on the market.
