Longtime East Village-based multimedia artist Hanne Lauridsen died Sunday at age 84.
A friend said that the Danish-born Lauridsen, also known as Hanne H7L, "peacefully passed away in her home on East 11th Street, cared for by loving neighbors and surrounded by her art." (A cause of death was not revealed.)
Even if you didn't know Lauridsen, you likely saw one of her art cars parked on the street... here.)
This bio outlines her expansive career that saw her exhibit in galleries in the United States and Europe.
We'll update this post if there's information about a celebration of her life.
Her car always stood out
She was a woman with tremendous energy. May she rest in peace.
Rest in peace - Love that car always made me smile when I saw it on 11th
Damn...I'll miss seeing her and her wonderful cars on the block. RIP, may you travel well in your Eternity.
I lived on 12th Street and ran into her sometimes when I walked my dog on 11th. It was always nice to chat with her. She will be missed.
Sad to hear this. I didn't know here, but of course saw her cars, and it was always a little exciting to see her.
Oh gosh, that makes me sad, she brought much happiness into this world. My heart goes out to her friends and family.
RIP bright soul!
I always wondered who was behind that artful car. Sad to hear, sounds like she had a great life.
Awww I loved her.
I didn’t know her personally but her work was awesome. RIP. You’re presence will be missed.
At 84, there doesn't need to be a cause of death.
Never knew who made that car! RIP.
New York can you feel it. Something in your colourful sparkling personality has gone. An ever lasting care and love for any human an living creature is no longer here. Hanne with the smiling face has died. Hanne the danish artist. She not even painted the world with spirit and bright fullness. Her arts and talks had lifelong the message to take care of our challenged nature. Ahead of her time. Her lifestyle too. Simple and deeply respectful to the resources. She had the sun, the wind and the oceans in her hair. I miss her dearly ❤️
