Hi! Please introduce yourself
My name is Rune Elmegaard. I am a Danish artist and furniture designer based in Ringsted a bit outside of Central Copenhagen. I love to work with acrylics on canvas but I also happen to sell fine art prints to give my customers the chance of always getting a piece of my work home with them.
Please explain to us what you do, Rune
Since the beginning of my 20’s I’ve been interested in the art world and danish design history. I love to always have a creative approach with all the many projects that I do and take on along the way. Combining shapes and colours together is something I always find appealing and drawn towards. The mid-century period is definitely the biggest design period where I get my inspirations from, and it can be seen through my colour choices when I create my art and fine art prints.
It all comes together with a touch of the past and the presence of modern interior design. Rune Elmegaard Studio works with a personal expression and develops new art and design. The dynamic creativity is reflected in the inspiration of the material and its possibilities, combined with unique design, creating innovative design that reflects the contemporary, and its need to adapt classically and creatively.
What are the cornerstones of your art?
I have painted both abstract styled with a modern touch for a long time now, but I also love to use geometrical lines in my work. In terms of colour, I have never been afraid to use different ones in my art, but often you will see colours from the 1960s inspired within my art.
What would you like to achieve in the future?
I would like to get even further out there with my art. Doing even more exhibitions again and sell my art more worldwide so every country has a piece of Rune Elmegaard on their walls.
Do you have an artistic advice?
Simplicity and patience are the keys when I paint, those two focus points go hand in hand for me.
I thank you David for getting me a spot on your blog that is greatly appreciated, keep up the great work you do for other artists.
Rune Elmegaard ★ Artist resume
Rune Elmegaard is a danish based abstract and geometrical artist that works with both minimal colours but is also inspired by the mid centuries colours through some of his geometrical paintings. I always get inspired by the 1960s which are one of my favourite periods to get inspiration from.
Thank you too, Rune.
