Søren Behncke alias papfar (1967) works with cardboard - painting, -sculpture, -installation, -action and -streetart.
Søren Behncke has within few years won great appreciation as an original artist taking streetart into new dimensions. Working with cardboard and objects found in the streets, the artist transforms the images and left overs from the popular culture into paintings, sculptures and streetactions.
The street actions take place in public spaces like city squares, monuments and art museums. The most famous action took place at Aros - Aarhus Kunstmuseum in 2005, when the artist had a huge cardboard-catapult smuggled in, and then gave it to "Boy", the famous sculpture of Ron Mueck, or when the Little Mermaid in Copenhagen got an enormous cardboard-hacksaw in 2006. Søren Behncke is represented at galleries and international art fairs.
