Original artwork by Danish artist and former fashion designer Malene Birger. Signed on the back.
This work reflects Malene Birgers long-time fascination with letters, typography and the Arabian and Persian hand painted alphabets. The artist’s main focus when starting on a work is to aim for a strong and contrasting sculptured form, inspired by night and day and how these are opposites.
For decades art has been an integrated and important part of Malene Birger’s life and work. She is a dedicated and passionate artist and art collector. Creativity is her driving force. Painting, graphic design and visual arts play a vital role in her work and style.
Her graphic ink drawings have been her signature for years, but she also sketches, paint and create collages. All disciplines present simple proportions and combinations of materials, which are contemporary and distinctive.

The multiple award-winning designer has since worked on numerous interior and design projects. She has moved more than 30 times since she was in her 20´s, lived in Stockholm, Mallorca, London and is now living by Lake Como in Italy, where she runs her workshop and studio MALENE BIRGER’S WORLD.
Malene Birger started painting when she moved to Mallorca in 2007. She has since focused on developing herself within new techniques and materials. At present she spends most of her time in her studio.
“I can’t live without my creative work, taking courses, working with my tutor – to be in that flow and process is freedom…. time stands still. I go into a space where I feel fulfilled, relaxed and inspired”.
And Malene Birger finds her inspiration in almost everything:
“I don’t really look for specific inspiration… inspiration is everywhere. It’s not only what you see, it’s how you translate the inputs and source. The art I create depends on my mood and my energy. To travel and meet other cultures, visiting artists and to follow creative people are all very stimulating”.
As Malene puts it simply:
“This world would be a very dull place without artists.”
