About me

Claus Villy Mokvist – Welcome to my universe.

I am a danish artist with inputs from life, people, nature, creative development and hard work. I am schooled at various art courses, academy-workshops, and masterclasses. My most important input, however, I got on the art-school at Samsø Folk High School in 2003. 8 months of intensive artistic workshop, on the danish island of Samsø.

I consider myself as an impressionistic/abstract artist. I work with acrylics, ink and cryons. I do have my routines, but I am always seeking playfulness, innovation and challenge in my work. I like to work in series and often use my own technique with monotopy-print and ink. I prefer to paint on Fabriano cardboard, handmade paper or canvas of good and durable quality. I always confront and challenge new ideas, whims and expressions.

Inspiration comes to me everywhere i turn: A glimpse in nature, a stroke of light in the morning, an art piece, a cartoon, a photograph, My homestead Mols or the reminiscence of Greenland, where I lived for several years. Or it could be from the sea, the sky or the universe. Inspiration strikes everywhere! I paint because I am a storyteller. Through colour, form and composition I hope to create and conway a story, and touch the fantasy and subconscious of my viewer.

I have been presented at a number of art exhibitions and art galleries in Denmark. In 2020 I participated in two curated art shows. I also work as a newsradio broadcaster, producing and hosting on various danish radios. I live and work in beautiful surroundings, on a hilltop, just outside the village of Rønde near Aarhus in Jutland. This is also where you find my art studio and my showroom.

Welcome to my universe.
