Nina wengel was born 1979, Aarhus, Denmark and based in Copenhagen, Denmark. She is an artist working in many medias and what is represented on this website is only a few projects of this artists' production. Mainly though, Nina Wengel works with contemporary landscape painting and light healing events, sometimes under the name GOOD WORK Productions. GOOD WORK Productions is an self invented organization working to improve urban atmosphere and strives to do projects, mainly in public space, which by the use of art affect themselves, interpersonal relations, society and the universe in a positive way.
