Ditte Ejlerskov


Ditte Ejlerskov is a Danish Contemporary artist whose artistic practice is a refreshing mix of classical abstract painting and a conceptual project-based approach. Her artworks consists of paintings, publications and prints, and each medium is is used to interpret and comment on our collective contemporary reality.

Media literacy and pop-culture are sources of inspiration for much of Ditte’s work.

She is observant of the space between the personal and public, questioning how individual experiences are formed within a stream of collective consciousness.

Ditte’s work has a strong feminist orientation, with gender disparity often at the core of her artistic agenda.
