Jakob Tolstrup’s Humorous and Eccentric Human and Animal Worlds

Tolstruppainting2 tolstruppainting tolstruppainting16

Inspired by past experimentation with graffiti culture, Jakob Tolstrup paints eccentric and bizarre characters and worlds. Most of his work combines images from the animal and human worlds and either exposes or makes fun of various aspects of these worlds. He uses humor and straight forward but absurd imagery to subvert ideas associated with the worlds he portrays. “I’m very fascinated by why people make the choices they do in this world, why we live the way we do and all the contradictions I see in the streets all over the world. Often with an alternative reality in mind.” Tolstrup was born in Denmark but currently lives in Berlin.
