Søren Behncke (born May 9, 1967 in Sønderborg) with the artist name Papfar is a Danish sculptor and painter who lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark. Søren Behncke has a background as an illustrator and graphic designer, but began to work with sculpture and painting in 2003. Behncke does gallery-oriented works, and sculptural happenings and actions in public spaces. Inspired by the architecture students' use of cardboard and glue guns for their model building, he makes works from discarded papers he collects from the neighborhood around the changing mini studio at home and abroad. His choice of materials not only keeps production costs to a minimum, but the rich packaging universe of warning signs and logos has further become an integrated and unique feature in Behncke's visual language. In Denmark, Behncke is best known under the alias 'Papfar' because of its spectacular happenings and staging of cardboard sculptures in the public space. Among his works is a sculpture of a Massey Ferguson tractor in the size 1: 1, a cardboard rabbit tied to a tree, a variety of tools in cardboard, and a tribute to Jørgen Nash in the form of a 4m long cardboard striker in front of the Little Mermaid . In 2005, he smashed a man-made cardboard snake bush to the giant Boy at Aros Aarhus Art Museum, which three years later officially invited him to a solo show in the West Gallery. He has since added another identity to the list of aliases - namely, the "Posemanden", which is the name he uses when the woven or embroidered images with strips of plastic bag into wire fence.
