When Jeppe Nedergaard started art school in Sønderborg seven years ago, he had never painted before. He had previously drawn and done graffiti, but painting was new to him. Today, he has found his style in contrasts and semi-abstract expression, and he makes a living from his art, which is primarily sold at Galleri Maxus101 in Augustenborg.
Art is paramount in Sønderborg. You can enjoy both local and internationally recognised works in several locations in the city.
Augustenborg is a town bursting with creativity. This is where local artists work and exhibit – it’s also where Augustina exhibits professional contemporary art at a high international level. So there’s plenty to look at – both indoors and outdoors. The same applies to many other places in the municipality – and if you dream of becoming an artist yourself, there are plenty of opportunities to train at Sønderborg Art School, which is beautifully located in the Multicultural House by Sønderborg’s harbour.
