...Mest kendt er TEJN for sit varemærke: “Lock On´s”, som er narrative skulpturer, svejset i jern og monteret i gadebilledet.

An introduction to Lock-On Street Art

An introduction to Lock-On Street Art | TEJN | Scoop.it

Through out the years, a variety of street art has emerged. From stenciling in mere seconds to yarn bombing However, there is one type of installation street art that is locked on my mind -- Lock On Street Art.

The father of lock on installations is street artist Tejn. The Danish artist Tejn is the founder of this type of street art. Most of his work consists of welded iron sculptures which have been placed in different cities. He prefers to obtain his material from cultural battlefields such as Christiania and Ground Zero on Jagtvej 69 (former Youth House).

Tejn mestrer som en af de eneste danske gadekunstnere både skulptur, maleri og grafisk design. Hans ting kendetegnes ved de budskaber og holdninger, der oftest med et tvist er flettet ind i værkerne.

TEJN | Conceptual Art Coin Project | TEJN | Scoop.it

Solo exhibition WELDED ATTITUDES by Danish sculptor TEJN.

 

WELDED ATTITUDES is based on TEJN’s raw and unpolished iron sculptures and drawings. For this exhibition the artist has created works that debates the human ups and downs. The ups and downs that are hidden under iron capes of self-control. The highly symbolic works therefore suggests a form of self-appraisal among the audience. 

Maybe you will push your own front stage narrative? And tear it down? Or strengthen it?

At the opening TEJN launches the EGOMØNT-project; a conceptual work that questions the Dane’s egocentric consumption of goods. As a part of the opening the artist will issue modified 10 Danish Kroner earmarked for non-profitable purposes...

Berlin Street Art - TEJN

Berlin Street Art - TEJN | TEJN | Scoop.it

A selection of some of the best Street Art Berlin has to offer.

Danish Street Artist TEJN creates sculptures from salvaged Iron found on the streets.  A number of pieces from his ‘Locked On’ project have popped up around Berlin including this huge character, which seems to me like it may be a Norse god, a larger version of a previous sculpture on Kastanianallee.

i812's insight:

The struggle for freedom continues.

Picture above: Street art sculpture by TEJN. Handcuffed character reaching for freedom symbolized in a bolt cutter, chained just/almost out of reach.
