About Asbjorn Lonvig in Editorial Croquis Art Magazine etc. in Buenos Aires
Asbjorn 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,
decontextualising 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.

Sobre Asbjorn Lonvig críticos en Editorial Croquis, Compartimiento del Arte, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Muestra un claro predominio de la actitud geométrica, emplea colores planos contrastados, destacando los conceptos próximos al pop-art. La obra del conocido artista danés Asbjorn Lonvig se interesa por los símbolos, iconos de una sociedad que se rige por imágenes, descontextualizándolos, emplazándolos en otras composiciones, en las que destaca su frescura y dinamicidad. Confecciona conjuntos formales, en los que predominan ideas sensibles, alegóricas infantiles o bien temáticas sin malicie, buscando ‘mironianamente’ una actitud sugerente que configure poco a poco un mundo de gran sensibilidad que va cautivando al espectador dentro de una calidez atractiva a pesar de la frialdad inicial.
Su contribución a la pintura pasa por el dominio de la composición, cultivando la forma, potenciando el uso pasional del color, para dotar a su pintura de características sugerentes que van más allá de los límites de las propias temáticas.
Comunica ironía, plasma una gran curiosidad innata, que se entrelaza por su tendencia a la experimentación, pero siempre supeditándola al control compositivo, buscando un claro diálogo entre forma, color, equilibrio y expresividad tonal.

Approved member of ARTROM GALLERY GUILD - International Society of Artists and Designers.
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 incude 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 of ARTROM Gallery GUILD.
