Biografi
Uffe Christoffersen havde sin debut på Charlottenborgs Forårsudstillling i 1971, og var medlem af kunstnergruppen Violet Sol 1974-88.
Han flyttede i 1990 til den lille landsby Fontareches i Provence i Sydfrankrig sammen med sin kone, Annette Hoff-Jessen, der også er maler. Uffe Christoffersen er tydeligvis en ekspressiv maler. Hans fornemste våben er farven og her er han videnskabelig i sin passion. Hans stil er en fandenivoldsk, farveglad og forførende form for ny-ekspressionisme. Uffe Christoffersen har en spontan og energisk maleglæde, som ikke er set siden COBRA-malerne vendte op og ned på det hele.

Motiverne er ofte tigeren eller mytiske figurer.

Biography
Uffe Christoffersen had his debut at the Charlottenborg’s Spring Exhibition in 1971, he where a member of the artistic group Violet Sol 1974-88.
Uffe moved in 1990 to south of France, to a little village Fontareches in Provence together with his wife, Annette Hoff-Jessen, who also is a painter. Uffe Christoffersen is clearly an expressive painter. His distinguished weapon is the colour and here, he is scientific in his passion. His style is a “devil-may-care”, vividly coloured and seducing form of new-expressionism. Uffe Christoffersen has a spontaneous and energetic painterly manner, as not seen since the COBRA painters turned everything upside-down.

The motifs are often tigers or mythological figures.
