Tag: Henrik Uldalen

Henrik Uldalen is a London based artist well known for his emotionally-charged oil paintings of figures, often appearing weightless and diminishing into the background."My work is based on abstract ideas of existentialism and nihilism, and on loneliness and numbness," he says. "They’re fairly loose ideas, as they’re a direct translation of my changing emotional states." We first featured Uldalen on the cover of Hi-Fructose Vol. 24, and here on our blog, where we've seen the artist progress from a more realistic, yet ethereal style to experimenting with abstraction.

On January 10th, "Feral Creatures" curator Stefanie Chefas will bring a new crop of artists to Modern Eden Gallery with "Platinum Blend". The title refers to each artist's ability to 'blend' different styles in a way that feels consistent throughout their careers, and amongst eachother. This includes artists Mel Kadel, Jana Brike, Deedee Cheriel, Brian Donnelly, Christine Wu, Zoë Williams, and Henrik Aa. Uldalen, featured here.
