The Artists


The Scelles Foundation will have a mural painted by the street artist Victor Ash.

Victor Ash is a French artist, originally from Portugal, who lives in Copenhagen.

Technique: His murals or stencil canvases show that, to him, the main danger comes from the growing disconnection between the countryside and cities, nature and culture. His studio works as well as his mural paintings aim at alerting the viewers.

Exposure: Victor Ash has done his first exhibition in 1989, invited by the French fashion designer Agnes b. Since then, his work has been exhibited around the world, including New York, Miami Art Basel, London, Seoul, and Tokyo. He is particularly well known for his gigantic ‘Cosmonaut’ In Berlin.
