Jasper is a self-taught painter, and painting had been his passion since long ago. He is 49 years old man living in Copenhagen. The past of Jasper Borup has made him realize that he can be a great artist who expresses his thoughts through his mixed-color art. He started his career as a carpenter, and later he became a construction technician. After all these years, he started to realize that he had creative talents such as painting. Later, he joined a small group of talented people in his city where he practiced art. Now art is his passion, and he loves to express his thoughts, dreams, frustrations and feelings through his art in exhibitions and on his Instagram account.
Technical statements of the work.
He has been developing his colorful mixed media art as a response to feelings and memories over the years, and lately he has been moving from pure abstract to figuration. Multicultural reproductions and depictions of modern life, coming along with strong background keywords that relates to his personal intentions are the core elements of his pieces. The duel between what we let others see and who we really are, which he call the fake look concept, has always fascinated him. The beauty he bring up from various sources, such as tribal people who live free and liberated, shows that there is no need to fit society’s unreal standards, wear living masks or shrink into the dull small boxes of self-limitation it tries to fit us in. Life should be less work, worries and rules, and more about relaxing, loving, living the moment. Love, in its most diverse expressions, is the pillar of a safe and welcoming environment that results in kind, good, happy and satisfied people. His art seeks to encourage people to be who they want to be, free on their choices and personalities, and to embrace what makes them different and special. His work intends to bring these possibilities together: potential and achievement, real and beautiful, expression and attention, modern and sensitive.
