Henry Heerup (Henry Heerup)

Henry Heerup

Artist. Reknown as a painter and sculptor. Born and lived in Copenhagen and outskirts. His art is naive much like the illustration on his tombstone (which he made himself). Even though he didn’t have any relation to the abstract expressionism in his painting, he belonged to the circle around Cobra. He was the founder and only member of the Elves’ Union.
