We have 11 cool artists showing work that collectively illustrates one of the major new directions that Street Art and Graffiti are going in right now...

 

...Sculptor TEJN from Copenhagen broadens our conception of what street art and public art and sculpture are with his installations that he chains and locks and leaves. Basically, he’s just giving you his art, and if you really want it probably you will need a blow torch...

Refractive Distance: Lock-Ons by TEJN

Refractive Distance: Lock-Ons by TEJN | TEJN | Scoop.it

Not only the position, but also the scale and the color of these impelling acting presences escalate the dramaturgical effect, revealing and combating the contradictions that characterize contemporary lifestyles and our cankerous system of values.

Raw iron works compellingly well for Danish artist TEJN. His sculptures are made from recycled iron, which he roughly welds together creating objects within a figurative sphere. The sculptures appear powerful and unpolished. To the trained eye TEJNs work may refer to the grand Danish sculptor Robert Jacobsen, who was celebrated for working with raw iron in the ‘50s and ‘60s. TEJN wants to bring the iron media to a new and contemporary stage of artwork.

TEJN finds metal scrap for his sculptures and uses some of it in its original form. The rest is created into figurative objects that express a narrative deadopen for interpretation.

 

“When making my sculptures I try to see people as they are, and not only the trained version of how they want to be,” says TEJN in connection to explaining his drive for the figurative.

 

The underlying honest self that comes forward when people lose their facades inspires the artist. He appreciates how the loss of self-control develops a new transparent world, which he builds into his works.
