André Viking (b.1989) is a Danish visual artist currently living and working in Copenhagen, Denmark. After graduating from Copenhagen Film & Photography School, Viking completed the General Studies Program at The International Center of Photography in 2014, where he was awarded two ICP Director’s Scholarships. With the strong belief in photography’s subjective yet universal language, André Viking draws from ancient history and myths to explore convoluted relationships between meaning, truth and fiction. Viking’s work has been exhibited internationally, including Copenhagen Photo Festival, Krakow Photomonth, and The Center for Fine Art Photography in Colorado.
