Bjorn Wiinblad Relief Tray Bowl

By: Sanjeevkumar

is certainly a man of countless exceptions.However, there is nothing strange in this, since the composite artisticpersonality of Bjorn Wiinblad is enough to fill more than one artist'slife-story. Born in 1918 in Copenhagen, this illustrator, set designer, posterartist, designer of porcelain, fabric and many practical objects, melomane andconnoisseur of music and belles lettres has still not lost his youthful urge tosearch for new adventures across a wide range of art, in spite of the successesand fame which he has already achieved. With an admirable detachment, notdevoid of self-irony, he is able to return to his personal failures.

An oft-repeated anecdote tells of the reason why he gave upon a literary career. During his studies at the Royal Academy of Art, he sentto a newspaper a poem he had written, illustrated with a drawing. With hisachievements in the field of fine art, fate has surely recompensed him ahundred times for that earlier misfortune. And, although, for many, 's art is at least debatable, one cannot refute either hisindividuality or his courage.

The clear, decisive form, the bold colouration of the flatsplashes of Bjorn Wiinblad paint, supported by calligraphic drawings, thedynamics, the irresistible, joyful decorativeness are in sharp contrast to themajority of ascetic Bjorn Wiinblad Danish design with which we have becomefamiliar. It is also certain that it is the ability to select the appropriatemedia and to subordinate them to his own conception that allows the artist tocreate such diverse forms as the tapestry designs, steeped in colour andvibrating with stratifying details, and the posters, appearing next to theclean, refined form of the "Asymmetry" service designed forRosenthal.
