Carsten Beck

 Page 1/1 

Beck has a graphic design, illustration and photography background. Though it was only in late 2019 that he started to experiment with translating his graphic sketches into living oil on canvas, he became an overnight success in the international art world and his works can be found in galleries from Milan to New York. 

Beck is based in Aalborg in northern Denmark. While out walking, he photographs the architectural lines of the city and its surfaces of light and shadow. These often form the direct basis for the compositions of the final works. 

Geometric sections of bright colours and and monumental, black-and-white works are the hallmarks of this self-taught artist, who draws inspiration from concrete art: a form of art based on a simple, non-figurative idiom and clean lines.
