The story behind

Kurt Trampedach was a Danish visual artist. From 1979, Trampedach lived in Sare in the French part of the Basque Country on the border with Spain, where he worked in isolation.

At the end of the 1960s, Trampedach had his artistic breakthrough, after he began studying at the art academy in 1963. Trampedach is best known for his paintings and graphic works, but sculptures were a significant part of his artistic output. Trampedach worked a lot with self-portraits. Furthermore, he often used the woman, with his wife as a model, as a motif.

Trampedach’s studio burned several times, and in 2005 a French-Moroccan was convicted of setting fire to the studio in France.

Kurt Trampedach died at his home in the South of France on November 12, 2013
