In the graphic universe of Rasmus Danø, the dystopia meets the humorous. His distinctive cartoonish style blends the grave, serious and gloomy with biting satire–why not dance on the tombstone instead of lying down to die? There is something classic and at the same time urban and unpretentious in Danø's aesthetic–the traditional graphic virtues meet a contemporary expression in a combination that suits each other surprisingly well.
Rasmus Danø graduated from The Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2001 and has since exhibited actively at home and abroad. He has received the National Art Foundation's annual work grant several times. He exhibited at Glasgow International in 2016.
