Claus Busch Risvig is a proud collector and supporter of emerging artists because, as he says, it takes more investigative work to find them. Always on the lookout for new talent, he is regularly seen at international art fairs and is very active online, where he shares art discoveries with his many followers on Instagram. Buying with his partner, Risvig has amassed one of the most important collections of the work of emerging artists in Denmark, with a focus on paintings and works on paper. Among the artists featured are Richie Culver, Oli Epp, Timothy Hull, Amir Khojasteh and Nick Theobald. In 2016, Risvig was a curator at the first edition of CODE, Scandinavia’s only international art fair.
