Viggo Forting


A very small but big man has passed away.

The painter and gprinter Viggo Forting is passed away the 19th of October, 2017, 87 years old.

 

Viggo loved his neighbor more than himself. A God-given Printer, anda fabulous gifted humourist is gone.

 

Viggo was a teacher-master teacher for a generation of new printmaking artists.
Viggo's life was marvelous as himself, in fact one must say he had more lives behind him, also good life.

 

Viggo has gone away, but his works, which he wisely delivered away will stand for joy, wonder and amazement for posterity.

Funen Printmaking Workshop has lost their "Maestro", concierge, and auxiliary spirit.

 

A memorial ceremony will be held on Thursday, the 26th of October at 16:30-19. Everyone is welcome to attend.
