Born in Denmark, Sune Christiansen completed his MA in graphic design and animation from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts – Architecture, Design, Conservation.
Before taking up painting in 2019 he has been working as an art director and animator at The Danish National Broadcasting Company from 2007. Along side this work he has directed several animation shorts.
Sune is a magician. He is in art what the great Danish masters represent for the kitchen: with a very limited base of elements, Sune CHRISTIANSEN builds a world full of explosions, surprises, unexpected twists and turns… it is fireworks, an impossible chain of events that lead us from the blank canvas to a colorful composition that on the one hand points to reality, and on the other to the most absolute abstraction. Sune is a master of color, with a primary and, at times, almost childish conception, Sune generates a pictorial atmosphere that dives in the colorist tradition of the twentieth century, in the Miró, Klee, Kandinsky …. all the great artists who discovered that color is in itself form, discourse, pure art. Sune is a discovery, a box of surprises that, as it opens, we are sure it will reveal worlds totally unknown to us until now.
