For the fair Elephant has curated a booth with new works by Urd J Pedersen and Mads Andreas Andreasen. We are excited to display the collaborative project between both artists which began back in 2018,  that emphasizes each artist's temperament and attitude towards painting as a drive for making art. The showcase will be the first ever in New York by either artist.
