Biography

Born 1969
Nationality Danish

When Danish artist Thomas Kluge began to exhibit work in 1994, his photorealist style immediately attracted attention. He has since worked on several public commissions in Denmark including a group portrait of thirteen members of the Merchants' Guild and portraits of the Danish Queen, Margrethe II. He has also collaborated with the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, producing a portrait of the comedian, Rikki Fulton, in 1997. Kluge, who lives in Copenhagen, often works from photographs and looks to the Old Masters for inspiration.
