The World of Art Award and
The Art Book ”Creative GENIUS"

Justus - Law education

The Art Publishers Masters of Today  Limited, London, UK has launched the Art Book ”Creative GENIUS”. 100 artists from all over the world have been chosen. One of the 100 artists were ME!

The editor of the World of Art Magazine said: “Absolute unique, dedicated, brilliant, excellent. Searching your web site I have to say that I AM IMPRESSED!!!" "...we granted you an award – The World of Art Award.” The World of Art Award is granted to artists, galleries and museums for the best practice in art and culture. This competition seeks to attract artists, galleries, museums who are redefining standards of art excellence challenging existing trends and tendencies in art and culture

The artist's Fairy Tales have been used in schools in USA. A school in Fort Lauderdale, Florida has used them all. The Danish Society of Lawyers has used the storytelling about Justus in educating layers to obtain license to meet in court.
The Danish Society of Lawyers said that it was the only available description of marketing by IT and storytelling in the branch.

Exciting physical art exhibitions in
Chicago and Rome

I have had the honour to be compared to Miró, Mondrian, Warhol, Gaudi, and Kandinsky
Compared me with me
Johan Sebastian Bach???

"Lonvig by Minymo"

The International Museum of Design and Architecture in Chicago, the Chicago Athenaeum was situated at Michigan Avenue - Chicago's counterpart to Fifth Avenue in New York. I exhibited in the  Denmark through Design together with Bang & Olufsen, Le Klint, Arne Jacobsen, Jacob Jensen and more. During a month the exhibition was attended by 50.000 visitors.
My brand new Bang & Olufsen design was shown in the Chicago Atheneaum, Museum of Architecture and Design.

The artist met José Dali, son of Salvador Dali. They both exhibited both at il Vittoriano in Rome, Italy.
José especially loved fairy tale character Crab-Mac-Claw. As father as son, does not work here. José is a very nice guy painting watercolor motives from Venice.

Below are a fine art motif "Philosophy of Life", a collage of fairy tale character Bernhard and
playhouse that has been built in Aarhus.


Author Alain Joannes, Paris, even compared Lonvig with Johan Sebastian Bach

...est de même nature que
la fascination
exercée par la musique de
Jean-Sébastien Bach.
Le compositeur organisait des
motifs mélodiques et harmoniques connus dans une architecture personnelle. Et l'on perçoit une subjectivité dramatique dans l’organisation, apparemment eutre, de figures musicales standardisées. Pareillement dans l’œuvre d’lonvig, on saisit une intention singulière dans la mise en page, dans la scénarisation, de formes rudimentaires vivement colorées.

I have worked with art, design and IT for more than 4 decades.
Last summer I did some counting: 12,500 works.
I have worked with:
Posters, Silk Screen Prints, Fine Art Prints in Hahnemühle philosophy, Paper Cuts in Matisse Paper Cut Technique, Acrylic Paintings, Digital Paintings, Art News Articles, Fairy Tales, Fairy Tale Colouring Books, Fairy Tale Characters, Vintage Posters, Graphic Designs, Product Designs, Design Outlines, Sculptures, Children’s Clothes.
offers physical paintings, fine art prints. From a web shop it will offer physical posters and postcards. As something unprecedented the ART Initiative will offer 's ART as digital images, e-books etc. - available for download for private use at affordable prices. At the same time it is the intention to offer the same e-products for commercial use and for manufacture use.

My work in Colorful Simplicity style. That is simple shapes in bright colours. I USA you must have an artist statement - I have one, too: "Colorful Simplicity in Art as in Life", inspired by a quote of the Danish priest, author, poet, philosopher Nikolaj Frederik Severin Grundtvig: "A simple, cheerful, active life on earth". However, besides the Colorful Simplicity style I have lately worked in the newly recognized Digital Painting Technique through which you can investigate different painting styles.
I was educated IT System Engineer by IBM and I was one of the first artists to investigate a presumed great future for IT in Art - starting with ART in IT.
There were initially a huge opposition to my IT/ART experiments. I received scores of nasty emails from art connoisseurs worldwide - for instance "old twat", "fucking stupid", "ignorant idiot", "you don't know shit about art", "you have no talent", "old brain dead fat ass",  "go have a heart attack or something before you spread any more of this disgusting crap on earth".

However at the same time I had positive response like: "I really enjoy this",
"What a wonderful site!", "It makes me proud to be an artist", "Impressive Work!", "Highly original derivative", "oxymoronic singularity", "individually universal", "chutzpah subversive hilarity", "I am loving lonvig",  "Wonderful work!", "it's so different!", "beauty is in simplicity", "your work is really great!!!", "I love your concept! Your art and your generosity of spirit", "but after reading your biography and seen your wonderful Art, your name should be Loving", "All of your art and specially the Lucca Project are superb works of fine art", "I have enjoyed your art works with a tremendous amount of enthusiasm".

I was granted the World of Art Award for his efforts: The World of Art Award (WAA) is granted to artists, galleries and museums that are pursuing "best practices" in art and culture.
The competition seeks to attract artists, galleries, museums that are redefining standards of art excellence challenging existing trends and tendencies in art and culture.

Criticism faded out, and Digital Art was eventually recognized as a legitimate art genre.
The "Creative Genius" story is too crazy to tell here.

Testimonials and critics have kindly compared me with Mondrian, Miró, Kandinsky, and Warhol.
I do not know about Miró and Kandinsky.
Alain Jahannes, an author from Paris has the most surprising suggestion.
In his book “Comment communiquer par des images”  he compares me with Johan Sebastian Bach, the ultimate master of contrapuntal composing.

I was born in 1949 in Brande, Denmark and I live in "Lille Fejringhus" in Hedensted, Denmark. "Lille Fejringhus" is my studio, my gallery, and my private dwelling.
If at some point you plan to visit Denmark - be welcome to visit "Lille Fejringhus".

About Lonvig in Editorial Croquis Art Magazine in
Buenos Aires:
Lonvig demonstrates a clear
predominance towards a geometrical approach,  using flat contrasted colours, emphasising perceptions which come close to being pop art.
The oeuvre of the well-known Danish artist involves symbols, icons of a society dominated by images,
de contextualising them, inserting them in other compositions in which their freshness and dynamism are emphasised.
He produces formal assemblies in which sensitive ideas, infantile allegories or non-hurtful subjects, predominate,
seeking in the style of Miró an evocative approach little-by-little shaping a world of great sensitivity which captivates the observer
with an attractive warmth in spite of its initial lack of emotion.
His contribution to painting extends further than the field of composition, cultivating form,
fostering the passionate use of colour in order to endow his
painting with suggestive features which go beyond the limits of the subjects themselves.
He communicates irony, gives expression to immense innate curiosity connected with his tendency to experimentation,
but always subordinating it to compositional organisation, seeking a clear dialogue between form, colour, balance and tonal expressiveness.

Dear  Lonvig,
The Staff at ARTROM Gallery has met to view your images.
We have also visited your websites and entered immediately into your world.
We are impressed with your ability to simplify a concept into an image and concentrate it,
to include only what is necessary. In evaluating your work for its strong graphic content, we  became aware of the size of the originals; they are all quite large and are acrylic on canvas. 
In viewing your works we discussed not only their graphic content, but discussed them as paintings, as objects unto themselves. Knowing that the images exist somewhere as objects of that dimension is far different than looking at images stored in some computer, regardless of how they were created. One can appreciate the graphic illustrative/informative quality of an image on a computer screen, but it stops there, until you know more about the image as it exists in "real life",
and this adds another dimension to the work. It also adds credibility to the commitment the artist has made to the image.
We feel that you believe in your commitment as an artist.
This is one of the aspects we look for in our GUILD Members.
When one believes in himself the message is clear.  We are also interested in your "Manifesto" below.        
"It's about the fact that the art market is predicted to grow 3,5 times because of the Internet.
It's about my decision to stake everything on the internet.
It's about concentrating my efforts on the internet when it comes to sales.
It's about my decision to make new standards and challenge art traditions by
making my drafts on a computer and exhibit the drafts.
And insist upon that a computer is nothing but a new tool.
And insist upon that using a computer is as worthy as not doing it!!!
We would like to help you accomplish these things, and welcome you to become a member.

The jubilation feelings given
by forms and colors of Lonvig...
French author Alain Joannes from Paris praises Lonvig's art to the skies in his new book "Comment communiquer par des images" ("How to communicate through pictures"). It is presented at Salon du Livre in Paris.005.

He wrote the following:
The art of the Danish painter Lonvig communicates at the first glance euphoria in a rough state. A so intense euphoria that the glance can not move away from the piece of his art.
Of course, the saturated colours are decisive in this very great glowing. The coloured dazzling and the feeling of pleasure which prolongs it have multiple causes. 
As adequacy between artistic creation and the constraints of communication, the art of Lonvig illustrates an assumption of neuro-cognitives sciences: the neurons in charge of visual perception are first activated by patterns recognition, then by colors recognition, then by recognition of textures and movements recognition. In a piece of art  like "Soul hurting still ", the sensory impacts of the forms and the colors are very strong and equal.  The pleasure comes from what the eye and the brain receive from the red, the yellow, the green and blue at the same time as they recognize the squares, the rectangles, the circles, the triangles, the straight and broken lines and even  the letter “A”.
The glance thus filled by a profusion of feelings founds a generating mental state of pleasure.

After and beyond the primary emotion, in a second phase of contemplation, the spirit endeavours to confer an overall significance on the table.  It calls upon its repertory of already memorized forms.  Then, the pleasure becomes ludic.  Functioning like a rebus, the chart of an unknown territory, a coded language or a mysterious diagram, the piece of art asks to the witness:  " What am I ?"
The many possible answers are mental resonances which give to the artistic communication a richness higher than all the other ways to communicate.
This communication is intersubjective.  It organizes the meeting between the subjectivity of the artist and the subjectivity of the witness. 
The witness of the piece of art is free to refer to tropical sensory prints: association of a dominating solar yellow, sky blue, deep vegetal green.  He can also associate the table with an intimate collection of primitive art. 
He shall perhaps remember the geometrical abstractions of Kandinsky and Mondrian. Surely, the piece of art  will be kept in the long memory space into the brain with all its resonances sensory, emotional, ludic and cultural.

It is may be interesting to know that the joyful  impact piece of art by Lonvig is closely related to its is canvassed artistic. High level data processing specialist then head of a software company, the painter found serenity in a pictorial creation which starts with digital drafts and finds its completion on a support – frame and fabric - entirely conceived and manufactured by the artist.
Alain Joannes,
