Bjarne Bladbjerg has always been passionate about visual art and over the years he has experimented with drawing and painting. His work is inspired by nature and changing light with emphasis on forms and colours stretching from the very detailed to the abstract. The vibrant colours in the work depict nature in a simplified and often seductive way.
For over 30 years, Bladbjerg has travelled as a diplomat to all corners of the world. Family links bring him to Crystal Palace, an area that he likes and has inspired him to produce 11 calendars of paintings of shops and buildings around the Triangle. These are in a similar vein to those produced for a 2007 calendar entitled 'Vejle Fjord', after the town in which he lives in Denmark.
