ABOUT POUL CHRISTENSEN A.K.A. CPART
Pouls camera is his brush. Next year will be his 30th year as a photographer. Poul began his lifelong passion in 1991. He never planned to be a photographer, but a trip around the world in 1989 created a spark. The breath taking scenery of Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand drove him to pack his bags again 5 years later - this time he opted to travel to Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda and Zimbabwe too. His travels forever changed his way of looking at life and he has since travelled around the globe visiting the most beautiful places it has to offer.
POUL’S JOURNEY INTO ART
Poul comes from a creative family. His grandfather on his mothers side was a carpenter who paid attention to detail like no other person he ever met. His grandfather on his fathers side was a traditional bookbinder who loved painting and sculpting. Although Poul’s own father chose a different line of work his fathers love for art and the creative side of life remained.
Through the years Poul has tried almost everything within photography - in Denmark and around Europe. Clients spanning from new small businesses that needed photos for their website to global companies needing documentation for worldwide product launches. The experiences from working in different lines of business and with so many people in so many places has given Poul a gift in life.
ABOUT POUL CHRISTENSEN’S ART, ART IS EVERYWHERE.
“My experience as a professional photographer and the eternal search for the perfect light and the best angles are my most important tools when creating art. Most of my work is abstract - a few others naturalistic.”
Poul truly believes that art is everywhere - even in the places you least expect to find it. Many years ago Poul was given the opportunity to capture art for a business and this turned out to be the kickstart of his journey into fine arts. This moment has led to many more opportunities, often with the assignment to correct spaces that need energy and structure.
Poul says he wants to offer his viewer a different perspective - one that makes you feel and creates a corridor into a creative universe that puzzles the mind with the goal to touch that creative part - that part that makes you feel positive, happy and curious. His work raises awareness and starts a dialogue on how inspiring nature is and how essential it is for our survival in more ways than we think about.
“I strongly believe in utopia and abundance and think that art should spark curiosity and positive feelings in order for us to support that abundance in our lives - a circular movement.”
To truly change the way we care too little about nature, his work reflects how he finds inspiration and how he appreciates and thanks nature for its positive effect on his art and his life.
