Søren Behncke


Søren Behncke aka papfar (1967) works with cardboard, painting, sculpture, installation, and street art and has within few years won great appreciation as an original artist taking streetart into new dimensions. Working with cardboard and objects found in the streets, the artist transforms the images and left overs from the popular culture into paintings, sculptures and streetactions.

The street actions take place in public spaces like city squares, monuments and art museums. The most famous action took place at Aros – Aarhus Kunstmuseum in 2006, when the artist had a huge cardboard-catapult smuggled in, and then gave it to “Boy”, the famous sculpture of Ron Mueck, or when the Little Mermaid in Copenhagen got an enormous cardboard-hacksaw. Søren Behncke is represented in the Aros Collection
