We are taking part in a group show at Somerset House in London from April 23rd – May 3rd:
Somerset House presents Pick Me Up, the first contemporary graphic art fair in the UK. The fair will bring together the most exciting graphic artists working today, giving you the opportunity to buy limited edition, affordable graphic art, illustration and design.
We have printet some of our cover artwork in large scale, among others the new Efterklang Magic Chairs cover, shot by Brian Buchard. It looks really good in 1×1 meter, so if you have the chance, go and see it there. Unfortunately we won’t be able to make it to the opening on Friday.
Pick Me Up at Somerset House, Strand, WC2R 1LA London. Embankment Galleries, South Wing.
Open daily 10.00 – 19.00 and until 20.00 on April 23rd and April 29th, entrance 5 £

We are happy to announce that we are going to China! We have been invited to Luxun Academy of Fine Arts (LAFA) in Shenyang to do a guest talk and a workshop, and we will probably also be visiting some other schools in the area. LAFA is one of the top art academies in China with varieties of specialties and departments and excellent academic staff, according to Saatchi Gallery’s website. We are very honoured to have received this invitation and also exited to finally have settled on a date, as we’ve been planning this trip for nearly a year now, since we were first contacted by LAFA student Mu Xulong.
We will be traveling end of May 2010, and after staying at the school for one week, we will spend a few days in Beijing. If anyone knows some interesting places we should go and see in Beijing, please leave a comment!
Art Stars is a project initiated by Ralph Lauren, where 50 up and coming contemporary artists from around the world have been commissioned to create artwork on big stars made out of wooden frames and denim. We decorated a star measuring 150 x 150 cm which almost didn’t even fit through the tiny door to our studio (where less than tall men usually bump their heads the first time they come for a visit).
Here are some pictures of the process as well as a picture from the fashion store Storm in Copenhagen, where the star was exhibited. Later all the stars will get together in London for a big show and then they will be auctioned off for charity.
