by Søren Solkær

16 Nov 2018 – 20 Jan 2019

MUCA presents an exhibition of internationally renowned Danish fine art photographer Søren Solkær. “SURFACE” is a portrait anthology of some of the most significant street artists on the contemporary scene.

After two decades of mainly portraying world’s leading musicians and actors, Søren Solkær (1969) set out to do a portrait anthology of the pioneering icons in Street Art across the globe. ‘SURFACE’ is the result of a three-year journey photographing street art stars in cities they consider their creative platform like London, Los Angeles, Miami, Sydney, Melbourne, Amsterdam, New York, Vancouver, Copenhagen, any many more.

‘SURFACE’ has been created in Søren’s signature style drawing influence from cinema and painting. His use of artificial lighting on location and a strong element of storytelling, creates images with an atmosphere of hyperrealism – a sort of imaginary film stills. Each artist is portrayed with their own art work, often using masks or props to obscure the identity of the artists.
