"Kurt Trampedach (*13 May 1943) is a Danish painter and sculptor. Trampedach has often made distorted self-portraits and portraits of his own wife. Painting is a way of dealing with his own psyche. At least two times Trampedach’s studio was set on fire by unknown perpetrators. Some people claimed that he had started the fire himself, but in 2005 a French-Moroccan was sentenced for the crime."
