Bio

HuskMitNavn is a multidisciplinary artist creating large-scale installations, extensive works in public, works on canvas and paper and beyond, sculpture, various print types, artist multiples and books.

HuskMitNavn (RememberMyName) has chosen to remain anonymous throughout his career, preferring the spotlight on his works rather than person. Interestingly he has become one of the most recognized and celebrated contemporary Danish artists with more than 200,000 followers around the globe on Instagram. He actively uses the medium to promote and instigate creativity. His artist books have been published around the world and it seems his distinct socially conscious practice resonates with a wide audience beyond Danish shores.
