As a significant seminal artist in Denmark, René Schmidt is renowned within the country’s art circles as an exceptionally talented artist within modern art. Born in 1968 and educated in art at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Art, Schmidt has conceived numerous spectacular and inspiring artworks, which are displayed both at galleries as well as museums. This extensive list of achievements led to Schmidt receiving the prestigious Eckersberg Medal in 2020, with credit to his innovative and forward-thinking utilization of digital media to create his modern art pieces, as well as his explorations of the spatial to create an implosion of shapes and sensory impressions.
In 2010, together with fellow artist Søren Taaning, he created the widely popular open art museum, “Deep Forest Art Land”, also known as “Skovsnogen” (‘forest snake’). Schmidt is in collaboration with Socle du Monde as the curator for the incredible exhibitions displayed at Deep Forest Art Land.
