#TOAFtakeover Goodmorning! I’m Lene Bladbjerg @lenebladbjerg . Today, I will be taking over The Other Art Fair’s instagram to show you some photos of my work as well as behind the scenes shots from my studio. I hope you will enjoy them! I’m a Danish artist, but have lived in London for 22 years and love being here. My background is as a graphic designer, which I think is quite obvious in my work. This first picture is of me at my TOAF stand talking to people about my work. I really enjoy doing the shows. Being an artist can be quite lonely, so it’s good to get out of the studio sometimes to meet people and get a response to my work. There’s such a great relationship between all the artists, which makes it really fun to be there. #TheOtherArtFair #TakeoverTuesday #lenebladbjerg #saatchiart #artfair #london #art
#TOAFtakeover. This is my studio, which is in Crystal Palace. I love going there! I have shared it with my sister, who’s a jeweller, for 13 years. She has recently moved out to open a shop in Crystal Palace called @aletage2 where she sells her own work and work from other artists/makers including mine and other TOAF artists. I helped her set the shop up, so I go there a lot. I now share my studio with a lovely photographer. #TheOtherArtFair, #TakeoverTuesday #lenebladbjerg #saatchiart #studio #art #london
#TOAFtakeover. Here’s a close-up of some scalpels. At the moment, I’m working on a commission in green colours on black. I do the work in stages and glue the colours onto the scalpels first before I start laying them out on the board. I love seeing them all come together. #TheOtherArtFair, #TakeoverTuesday #lenebladbjerg #saatchiart #scalpels #green #closeup
