The Danish artist Tal R has created an extensive body of work over two decades, making his mark internationally as one of the most important painters of his generation.
Tal Rʼs visual culture has a figurative aspect, freely unfolded in painting, drawing, graphics, collage, artistʼs book and sculpture.
Form aside, for the artist it has always been a matter of using imagination to make the world bigger.
