Ole Aakjaer

(Copenhagen, Denmark 1962 - Present)


Ole Aakjær is a Danish artist born in 1962 who has been drawing and painting since he was able to hold a brush in his hands. Originally, his dream was to create cartoons, looking up to artists such as Milo Manara, Enki Bilal and Jean Giraud (aka Moebius). In the mid-1980s, he successfully published an album at Carlsen, Denmark's main comic book publisher at the time. Since 1992, he runs his own illustration studio. Ole Aakjær has won numerous awards and competitions and has gained notoriety as a man of ideas, poster artist and painter. His last 24 exhibitions have all been a success, with every single piece sold.
