Lasse Thorst

Lasse Thorst, born 1979, lives and works in Aalborg, Denmark.

After a ten year hiatus, Thorst took up painting in 2018 after a trip to Vietnam, where he was introduced to an ancient lacquer painting technique. He had his debut later that year showing with Galerie Wolfsen at the NORTH Art Fair.

His figurative and expressive works are based on visual storytelling, where he usually works from old photographs creating a contemporary view. The themes are classic - a testimony on especially 19th century popular culture and early folklore. Thorst aims to explore the narrative, combining eternal interaction and personal memory into paintings. He works in quick sessions, usually wet into wet, oil on linen and canvas. The artist’s past as a musician and a Grammy-nominated songwriter is clear in his urge to tell stories with his significant, expressive and rhythmical brush strokes.
