Biography

Jakob Kolding explores contemporary urban space through his collages and prints. Graphic and black-and-white, Kolding’s work is influenced by urban planning and the modernist architecture of the European cities in which he works, including Amsterdam and Berlin. His collages combine images of built and planned spaces with figures that reference street and urban culture—like businessmen or skateboarders—mirroring the tension between them in his visually dynamic compositions. He often incorporates text that references the processes and jargon of urban development.
