Ole Bundgaard is one of the pioneers within the area of computerassisted art in Denmark. for more than 15 years he has been working with the computer as a tool in his creation of art.

In addition he has been working with a lot of other techniques during the past 30 years: oil, pastel, acrylic, collage and mixed media’s plus various graphic techniques. 

The style of Bundgaard comes close to a figurative abstract symbolic expressionism. Myths are the foundation of his art.

What did the critics say:

,,The ability to create aesthetic qualities show some of Ole Bundgaards brightening works based on the collage."
Eva Pohl, Berlingske Tidende.

,,Art it is. Conscious and beautiful -
provocative, searching.... Experience
Ole Bundgaard and notice the world - a new world, where the technology of the computer with seductive multiplicity support the pure soul of an artist."
Poul Krabbe, Aalborg Stiftstidende.

The canvases of Ole Bundgaard are the most picturesque. They have the
character of the collage with many
fragmentary coatings. Some forfeit in
whirling, blue-white movements into
darkness, others are textural in a more quiet way, but everywhere appear scraps of words and sentences. Done with discipline and sense of color."
Gertrud Købke Sutton, lnformation

... In the performance of Ole Bundgaard is no kind of pop. He is a seriously working artist. What he has achieved with his computer-graphics - in colors and in black and white as well -is really fantastic.... He has proved that mastering the new technique makes it possible to achieve amazing results. Paintings
containing a lot of beauty too." 
Poul Nielsen, Horsens Dagblad

,,Light, colors, fragrance and an
indefinable feeling are connected with
the computer graphics of Ole Bundgaard... When the computer is
operated by an artist as Ole Bundgaard it gets life, rhythm and movement. You can be convinced by visiting his exhibition on the North Sea Museum".

Lisbeth Davidsen, Vendsyssel Tidende
