Erik A. Frandsen is a self-taught artist. In the years 1976-1979 he studied ceramics in Greece, spent time in Carrara, Italy training as a sculptor and went to Paris, France where he worked with graphics. In the early 80s he was one of the founders of Værkstedet Værst (Workshop Worst) in Copenhagen. Around this anarchist workplace community, after German and Italian inspiration, grew an enormous productive period in Danish art, entitled “The New Wild”.

Erik A. Frandsen is one of Denmark's most prominent artists. He has been drawing artistic novelties since the 1980s. His works have been exhibited at Documenta IX in Kassel 1992, Museum of Contemporary Art in Antwerp 2000, Louisiana 2004, Fondation Beyeler in Switzerland 2005, New Carlsberg Glyptotek 2007, ARoS 2008 and Arken 2010. In recent years, he has also performed decorations for Christiansborg, Frederik VIII's Palace at Amalienborg, Aarhus University, the Opera in Copenhagen and Novo Nordisk in New York. Erik A. Frandsen has been awarded the Thorvaldsen Medaillen by the Academy Council in 2016 - thereby gaining the greatest artistic recognition that can be achieved in Denmark.

Erik A. Frandsen continues his ongoing exploration of lines and perspective, central to his artistic expression.
