Whether he accepts the accolade or not, Frodo Mikkelsen is a legend in the making. Still a few years shy of 50, the Copenhagen artist has achieved the pinnacle of what many fine art and graffiti-influenced forefathers often spend a lifetime attempting to balance— public visibility, respect from the streets, and recognition from the contemporary art world. Frodo has walked an incredible line. Some of his art resides in permanent collection at Metropolitan museum of art in NY, while other commissioned or self-propelled work graces walls from as far away as the Museum of Graffiti, Florida, Bergen kunstmuseum, Norway, and as close to home as, ARoS - Aarhus kunstmuseum, Denmark.
Frodo has artistically done a lot — Paintings, Street Art, Sculptures, Ceramics, Collages, Linolium and Prints. He’s work is comic-slash-history books on acid. It’s that colorful, immersive, informative, and organized. It’s an incredibly lush time machine for the eyes, full of surrealism, subversive, pop, and wildly vivid illustration elements — no doubt the result of his enthralling artistic track record and a really important graffiti heritage.
