Experience one of Denmark’s most prolific cartoonists, Henrik Rehr, at Copenhagen Comics

You’ve probably read comics drawn by Henrik Rehr. Whether it’s all the way back to Seriemagasinet in the 80s, from his album debut, Drømmen om Langskibene from 1987 or perhaps some of the many strips Henrik drew for the Scandinavian Basserne magazine. He has drawn Rasmus Klump himself, including for the Rasmus Klump attraction in Tivoli Gardens and for the book Sikke et mylder, Rasmus Klump.

Rehr has also had his name on the title page of over 40 comic books, including Julius, Kvikleif, Danmark Besat, Uår, Tribeca Sunset, Bloodwedding. Henrik Rehr has also published a number of very beautiful graphic novels: Gavrilo Princip, Det cubanske efterår, Husk kilden når du drikker vandet, Samtidig, Lev and Sofia Tolstoy and Dostojevski. The books are at a very high level and highly acclaimed. In addition to Danish, they have also been published in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Greek, Arabic, Korean, Japanese, Bosnian, Norwegian, Swedish and Dutch.

Rehr has received work grants from the Danish Arts Foundation and Rehr’s work has been exhibited at numerous museums and exhibitions: The Danish Museum of Industry, The Museum of National History at Frederiksborg Castle, Reykjavik Art Museum, Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art in New York, Centre Internationale de la Caricature de Saint-Just-Le-Martel, Society of Illustrators in New York, Treviso Cartoon Festival in Italy, Musee Columbier d’Ales, The French Cultural Institute in Amman, Jordan, Archives diplomatiques de La Courneuve in Paris, The French Institute in Ankara, Turkey and the National Library in Sofia.
