Visit the Visual Artists on Bornholm

The special light and the unique scenery has drawn uncountably many visual artists to the island for generations.

Big, well-known names – and almost unknown artists

On one hand visual arts are works from prominent, well-known painters, like Holger Drachmann, Karl Isakson, Oluf Høst and others, which you can see in the Bornholm Art Museums.

The current and maybe almost unknown visual artists are also creating works of high quality, which you can experience on the island. In the past, they painted things as they “were”, however today the pieces are much more a reflection of the society that the artists are a part of and are also part of a continuous on-going change.

A broad spectre of visual artists on Bornholm

Therefore you’ll find many different fields between the island’s many visual artists. And it’s not just the painters, but also the sculptors or those, who use a computer to create their pictures – all of them are visual artists.

Many visual artists have their own atelier, a gallery or a workshop on Bornholm, which you can visit. Here you can see the artists’ pieces and talk to the creator of the works in person.
