About Ole Hedeager
I am 53 years old and live in the lovely village Klovborg in Denmark, which is close to the Jutland ridge near the Kings Jelling, where the kings of the Vikings ruled over most of Europe and England for centuries. Many have probably not discovered this little gem where I live, but the place deserves much more attention.
I am educated primary school teacher with, among other things, line subjects in visual arts and have a past as an advertising designer/desktop and decorator.
I won my first draw competition already as a 13 year old and sold my first drawings in the same year.
I now work full time, with my art and have specialized in what is called Drip paintings, and am as far as I know almost the only one who makes these on canvas in Europe.
I have drawn and painted, all my life and the study of lines, shapes and colors, has become an obsession for me, which manifests itself in a need to express myself.
I consider myself most of all as a craftsman seeking the stage over the actual craft, that can be realized in what is called art. I am constantly in search of the perfect, so perfect that it has the imperfect stroke and lightness.
In my drip-paintings, I try to give a masculine insight into physicality. These contain moods and emotions and a personal insight into being a human
