The Danish artist Henry Heerup (1907-1993) found expression in painting, sculpture and graphics. In the 1930s Heerup exhibited at Linien, together with a number of artists, including the Surrealists Ejler Bille and Richard Mortensen. This was to have a great influence on his expression, which ceased to be naturalistic and representative. He later joined the CoBrA movement. Heerup's works are characterised by their brightly coloured, highly imaginative, heavily symbolic expression. He always worked with a certain sense of humour, particularly in his rubbish models, which he constructed out of every conceivable material he could get his hands on.
