Per Kirkeby (*1938, Copenhagen - 2018, ibid.) initially studied geology at the University of Copenhagen. It was only after graduation that he found his way to art, and his own works earned him a grant at the State Art Foundation. In the 1960s and 1970s, Kirkeby was much involved with Pop Art and informal painting. In the 1980s, however, Kirkeby found his trademark:
Meandering forms, a play with perspective, and space as a work of art. Kirkeby always manages to make the viewer and the environment an integral part of his works. Even his two-dimensional works show traces of a spatiality. Per Kirkeby does not limit himself to the depiction of a single thing; with little color, he manages to give his paintings a deep perspective.
In 2001 he was even awarded the Danish Medal of Merit - the Ingenio et arti.
