Within the Artist-in-Residence Program, CCA is delighted to host Jakob Steen.

Steen was born in Cambridge, UK, in 1986. He lives and works in Præstø, Denmark and he is staying in Studio Amarillo during March 2020.


Jakob Steen is an experimenting visual artist working across multiple disciplines and media. Steen debuted in 2018 with his first solo show Om Mani Padme at Collaborations by Tania & Thomas Asbæk. Steen’s work is found in a space between the figurative and abstract painting, where contact is established between the physical realm and a cosmic energy, embedded in his work.

He also investigates dark colors because he is interested in what you see when you close your eyes. The blue colors stem from his time in Mallorca, where going to the water is an essential everyday routine for his work to progress.
