Painting each original artwork to convey both personal meaning and ambiguity, Soren Grau works in two radically different styles: Neo-Expressionism and Suprematism. For his Neo-Expressionist work, Grau cites Jackson Pollock, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Clyfford Still as inspirations in both style and attitude.
With cultural icons and world events often acting as inspiration, he strives to communicate meaning through both figures and colors. Grau, speaking about his neo-expressionist works, says “I know what I have set out to do but the details that come out in the canvas are an obscured vision of the subject…”
Originating from Denmark, Grau currently lives in Los Angeles, California. His experience in graphic design informs his compositions and methodology. Grau considers himself an anti-conformist and finds joy in creating his open-ended creative expressions on canvas.
Soren Grau’s artworks have been collected by international companies, including Red Bull, HBO, Toyota, and FX, as well as by private art lovers worldwide.
