Jacob Fuglsang Mikkelsen is a Danish artists who grew up in Sweden and became a man in New York. In the 90′s he worked as a photographer, artist, DJ and Host for club events in New York’s nightlife. After September 11th 2001, his life took a new direction and he started working on projects to create awareness about urgent global issues, through art. His current projects are CO2 Green Drive – a global performance project with focus on alternative energy and the climate. The other, a cultural and artistic exchange concept called The Triangle Project.
In the spring of 2014 he has plans to bring The Triangle Project to Reykjavik, Iceland. There he wants to launch “Intentional Art” as a new art form and initiate the establishment of the BF Bank. BF is of course short for Bobby Fischer and the plan is to collaborate with local artists to exchange experiences around the current state of Denmark and Iceland, with inspiration from Istanbul and New York.
This will be done by creating a board of directors that will co-create the framework for a new bank on Iceland. He is open to collaboration and can be contacted through Facebook: facebook.com/jacob.fuglsang.mikkelsen
