Stefan Bannow (DK)
Danish artist Stefan Bannow (1952) works primarily with paintings and graphics. Bannow is educated from Det Fynske Kunstakademi (Art Academy) in Denmark. A first encounter with Bannow’s graphic world of images would make you think of Surrealism. However, Bannow’s field of work is not a psychological uncovering of the deeper layers in the individual mind, but rather a socially engaged focus on the community and its viability. The art of Stefan Bannow does in more than one sense hover about wandering; it delineates human journeys between breaches and the search for fellowship and fixed places, just as it reflects upon the artist’s own restless wanderings and never ending search for redemption and answers.
