Henrik moved to Copenhagen in 2015 where he started his education at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. In 2018 Henrik participated in an exchange program at Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, USA. He is very dedicated and eager so the production is high. He has experience with materials like oil paint, acrylic, spray, digital art and other effects. He is inspired by street art. For him producing art is a journey to a free place where anything and everything can happen. He is also known for his expressionistic art, which often incorporates text and lyrics. His goal is to continue to build his unique style of contemporary art and make modern art for the future.

According to the mixed media technique, most of the works combines acrylic, oil painting, inkjet and other mediums. Usually the background is created digitally and printed out on high quality canvas.  The colors, lines and motives are painted with acrylic and oil painting.
