Aage Bentsen (DK)
Aage Bentsen is a Danish graphic artist. In his graphic artworks, Bentsen immerses the observer in an exotic and unknown world. Spotted and strong animals, as well as peculiar masks by the yellow, beige and black hues remind the viewer of aspects related to tribal life and dance. Bentsen follows the same tribal concept depicting half-naked young boys and girls enjoying the surrounding nature. These human bodies are often naked and almost skeletal in some of his other works, as if Bentsen wished to show them complementing nature. Winter landscape scenarios are also portrayed by this artist: rivers in flood and forests seem to steal the scene at the inhabited centres of cities or villages.
