My name is René Tromborg, 47 years old, living in Copenhagen, Denmark. In short, I am currently working on a new creative chapter in my life. I have for a long time wanted to explore painting and am very inspired by the graphic element of graffiti and the colorful and often simple expressions of pop art. I have painted a lot of graffiti in the past and have even exhibited a few times with graffiti canvases. Grafitti interest me since the 80s, when I fell in love with hip hop, but it also got new life in the 4 years I lived in Brooklyn, New York where I worked as a music producer / songwriter in the 00’s.
My paintings start with a sketch on paper, where I work with composition and perspective. It is important to me that it is in place before I move on to the canvas and paint. I do a lot of sketching 🙂 Color choices and light / shadow are also something I work on a lot, in order to get the right depth and feeling in the image. I paint freehand and although my pictures have a tight graphic expression, they are painted without the use of masking tape etc. I think that gives the picture a more vivid and analog expression. In the future I dream of doing more exhibitions and work in a bigger format doing murals.
