Henrik Gødsbøll Madsen
Lives and works in Copenhagen
HG Madsen’s primary practice is figurative acrylic painting. He investigates aspects of society and modern civilisation by portraying specific human figures and characters from everyday life. A typical motif, the tourist figure represents not only the specific instance of the tourist role but functions also as a gatekeeper to a bigger picture, an allegory.
HG Madsen holds a master’s degree in anthropology and you could observe his work as a sort of visual anthropology. Parallel to his work as a painter HG Madsen has been working professionally in the field of web design and animations.
