Martin Denker

//I want to show a planet infested with a species in rage, in acceleration and constant motion in that, becoming an abstract phenomenon. But I also want to show how much beauty we can find in this development we’re in, when we see it as an adventure or a challenge. My images stand for the high speed insanity we’re facing every day..// Denker 

Martin Denker [1976], a German artist creates an explosively personal, fantastical vision straddling — Surrealism, Pop, and Psychedelia.

Denker is educated within The Arts in the US and Germany and has been a longtime assistent to Andreas Gursky.

He constructs his images from a multitude of appropriated photographic and visual sources including news, advertising, pornography, and film-stills. Constantly inspired by the stimuli around him, from the internet, video games, psychotherapy, and art history, the images are orchestrated via image-processing/altering applications, into large-scale photographic works.

PUG OSLO presented Denker’s work in the exhibition High Speed Insanity. The exhibition was presented at Blomqvist Auction House and was a group showing with; Roger Ballen/Sally Mann/Vic Muniz/Andres Serrano/Joel Peter Witkin.

The Artist has been exhibition through out Europe and the US, and is aquired by numerous collections, such as The Statoil Art Collection.
