Lars Dan

Lars Dan (born February 27, 1960 ) is a Danish painter and graphic artist . Lars Dan was one of "the young savages" (De unge vilde

). The young savages is the name of a movement in Danish visual arts started the early 1980s . The expression itself comes from the German (Junge Wilde), who was the inspiration for the Danish movement. You often use the designation The New Wild (from the corresponding German Die Neue Wilde ).

The movement is particularly characterized by a return to painting after a period dominated by minimalism and conceptual art, which the movement can be seen as a revolt against. Often, strange material mixes and confusing meanings are seen together in the paintings, thus ignoring in any way the ongoing tendency towards abstraction and theoretical approach to art.
