Jacob Brostrup (born 1973 in Denmark)
Lives and works in Copenhagen and in Barcelona.
Within the last ten years, the works of Brostrup have placed themselves in the field of semi-realistic paintings. His works are coloristic, vibrant and the many details grab the viewer and plunges him in the vivid paintings.
Brostrups universe is a sampling of snapshots, of hidden glimpses of the past, other cultures and of the movement of everyday life. His motives derive from photographs taken where his path takes him, everyday sequences or on journeys. There are layers upon layers; a fusion of sensory impressions.
Brostrup works with a classic format; at first the sketch streaks with pencil on canvas and then the oil paint is applied. It is one layer of oil paint, which requires constant focus, a more direct spontaneous expression not unequal with music experienced in a live version.
Brostrup is driven by the desire to tell a story. In the past his focus were primarily on nature and architecture, but in recent years several key figures have emerged on to the canvas.
