Art Madrid'24 – Carsten Beck

Carsten Beck

Dinamarca, 1986

The Danish artist Carsten Beck lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark. My paintings can be referred to as a boil down of Scandinavian minimalistic expression transferred to oil on canvas. The paintings are a mix of a geometric perspective in forms and shapes with a mathematician’s attention to detail and high-quality materials. Beck’s background in print making and photography gives the artist the options to see perspectives in art creating new geometric shapes in a powerful and contradictory color scheme. The biggest inspiration for his art works, often go on long walks to capture new perspectives and angles. This inspiration he translates into new sketches and ideas. He attempts to relate his work to midcentury art and equally draw inspiration from this, with one of his favourite architects being Alvar Aalto.
