About Alexander Tovborg
Alexander Tovborg was born in 1983 in Copenhagen (Denmark). He currently lives and works in Copenhagen (Denmark) and Berlin (Germany).
Influenced by religious art and metaphysics, Alexander Tovborg creates semi-abstract paintings, sculptures, and drawings that combine biomorphic forms, patterns, and dream imagery. He blends his imagination and dream experiences with Western religion and European folk traditions, a combination that gives his paintings a mythic dimension and the objects and occasional figures in them an almost archetypal significance. Tovborg explores enlightenment, transcendence, and the ability of art to activate deep, recessed spiritual feelings in the viewer.
