Jakob Tolstrup is an artist based in both Copenhagen, Denmark, and Berlin, Germany, who creates wildly imaginative paintings. As though straight out of a bizarre dream, the kind that has people waking up scratching their heads, the scenarios are at once humorous and bewildering. Jakob Tolstrup mashes together the human and animal worlds as though he were creating his own cartoon show.
Inspired by his graffiti background, Jakob Tolstrup incorporates eccentric elements as well as bright colors that capture people's attention immediately. Jakob Tolstrup says about his work, “I’m very fascinated by why people make the choices they do in this world, why we live the way we do and all the contradictions I see in the streets all over the world. Often with an alternative reality in mind.”
