In his own words, Keen Heick-Abildhauge:
- Real life
Street walk is my way of being curious and adventurous. I wish to capture the small moments in life that we are just passing by when we walk on the streets or sit at a bar or restaurant. It´s all about seeing the beauty that we are surrounded by in our everyday life without really paying attention. Now I have captured it in pictures, so we will remember it for the rest of our lives.
A bit about the artist
I try to be open minded and curious about life. I love looking trough my camera and here the click og magic when I am freezing time, and making a snapshot of life, that never can be done again. That is just fantastic.
I have the feeling of seeing the world that i am surrounding much clear through my camera, and that is also why i cant’ stop doing it. I am Danish ,30 years, and have recently started a new adventure in my life of becoming a father!
Why Generator is such a good fit:
Generator first of all gave me the opportunity to do it And I am so happy they did. It just feel so right, that my work is going to be in a place with so much energy, new people every day, young and old etc. many cultures. People are staying at Generator, because they wanna see Denmark/cph, just the way I saw all the cities in my Street Walk project, its about being curious, and be adventurous and I have that feeling about Generator.
Here is a littel sneak peek:
Welcome to Thomas Woody at Generator Copenhagen’s exhibition space!
New hostel exhibition starts on 12th April
We welcome the local artist Thomas Woody as he officially opens up his exhibition in our first floor space. Thomas’s printed graphic designs have an extravagant cartoon character and you will find amusing animal prints adorned with modern day gadgets and other daily essentials like suitcases or even spaceships.
The exhibition will start with an opening event on Friday, 12th April from 8pm.
Join us for themed cocktails, and see what special and unique prints Thomas will be bringing and selling! Hopefully his back-packing badger will be one of the exhibits.
Entrance is free and everyone is invited, so don’t miss the opportunity to meet and greet this great Dansk artist.
More info about the event you can find on Facebook.
What Thomas Woody says about his style (artist quote):
“I am an educated animator. I am 26 years old. I graduated from The Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark in February 2008. I have worked as an animator at the production company Copenhagen Bombay, where I animated on the movie, The apple and the worm and later on, the TV Show Pandaerne (The Pandas). And right now I draw a comic strip for a Danish newspaper.
What I’m trying to do here is to create a universe of characters, characters that are a mix of graphic design and classic cartoon style. The classic cartoon style is very important for me, because I have a background as an cartoon animator and it’s important that people can tell that when they look at my pictures. The graphic design is also important for me. I find it more and more interesting to work with and it gives my pictures a nice and simple graphic look.”
