From an alien’s point of view
Torge Steffens’s solo exhibition
7 I 29 June, 2019
Opening Friday June, 7th, 7-10pm
Werkkunst Gallery is pleased to present the solo exhibition of Torge Steffens “From an alien’s point of
view” who through his works he looks at humanity on earth from “above”.
Since Torge was a child, he was always into music and art, he learned playing the violin, guitar, piano and
painted a lot. When he finished school, he had to choose between studying music or art. At the end he studied
Design (communication design) and it was a really good decision. At this time Torge was inspired from
artists like Egon Schiele and Horst Janssen.
So, he started painting as a child – but he started to paint “seriously” when he was like 16/17 years old. He
developed his style and technique during his studies in the mid twenties (1996-1999).
During his career as a designer he didn’t paint at all (only sketching and illustrating), but now since 3 years
he started again, now with all the experiences made as creative director.
