Erik Steffensen, born in Copenhagen in 1961, is one of the biggest Danish contemporary artist and has become internationally known. After studying philosophy and art history, Erik Steffensen studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen and was a professor there from 1996 to 2007.
Even though the artist is traveling through the world to find motives for his photographs, his works are in the aesthetic tradition of the Nordic artists like Vilhelm Hammershøi. His way of treatment photography as artistic means becomes recognizable in the colored photographic works, which express themselves in an expressionist manner.
Steffensen created commissioned works for such renowned houses as the Fotomuseum Winterthur and the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk. Internationally renowned collections and museums in major art cities such as New York, Copenhagen, Paris and Zurich show his work.
