Jury statement 2015:

Adam Saks trained at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, Denmark, and Berlin University of the Arts in Germany. Adam Saks takes an enthusiastic and experimental approach to most printmaking techniques. He masters and embraces the unique forms of expression intrinsic to the various techniques, thereby transforming the technical limitations and potential of graphic art into something distinctive and personal. Mr Saks’s art lies in the tension between figuration and abstraction, and his works often have an ambiguous narrative. His works are featured in public collections in Denmark, Finland, Sweden and France.

In 2014, Adam Saks was one of 13 artists nominated for the Queen Sonja Print Award. Kjell Nupen himself nominated the young Danish artist.
