Mathias Løvgreen


Mathias Løvgreen (b. 1991) is a visual artist based in Copenhagen, Denmark, whose work is centred on subjects around politics, population tendencies and obscure elements in everyday life. 

Through his studies at The Royal Academy of Arts, The Hague, Fatamorgana The Danish School of Art Photography and The Danish School of Media and Journalism he has specialized in projects of political and humanitarian concern. These projects are told through an interpretive eye where he uses his curiosity in psychology, science, and art history to discover and develop work.

Mathias Løvgreen has received numerous awards in renowned photography competitions such as the Danish Picture of the Year, College Photographer of the Year, International Photography Awards and Family of Man with his works concerning censorship in Saudi Arabia and the ongoing immigrations crisis in Europe. He is currently mentored by curator and artist Erik Kessels (NL) and is continuously supported by Danish arts foundations.
