Nils Erik Gjerdevik holds a unique position in the Danish art world. He makes paintings, sculptures and drawings – and he constantly challenges these media. For almost three decades, Gjerdevik has been the personification of innovation and that is one of the reasons why his art, among other things, has been a source of inspiration for a lot of contemporary artists.
His body of work is both extensive and multi-faceted. It contains elements from several “-isms”, like the abstract formal, but also from architectural form language. Cartoon-like elements meet science fiction, and ornaments and arabesques exist side by side with whirling spirals and tortuous patterns.
