If you’re in search of Denmark’s finest emerging illustrators, artists and comic book pencillers, then find your way to Nørrebro’s CMYK kld, a pokey little place tucked away towards the end of Jægersborgade.
CMYK kld operates as a gallery, bookshop, print factory and retail space and is the brainchild of artist Maya Langeland who envisaged the space also as a platform for Denmark’s independent art/design scene.
Here you will find art that won’t cost you the earth. The front serves as a rotating gallery space where new artists present on a monthly basis, but the real fun stuff happens at the back. Walls are covered in framed illustrations, there’s a drawing desk with original prints and sketches, an animation box that loops a series of short films, and a tiered house of postcards.
With works from over 50 artists on show, you can’t help but feel a bit like a kid in the proverbial candy shop. You can even choose your illustration, pick your paper and frame, and then watch as Maya brings it to A4-sized life.
