Kirkeby is considered the largest Danish post-war artist by Asger Jorn. In 1962 he joined the Ex-school, where he met Paul Gernes, Peter Louis-Jensen and Bjørn Nørgaard. In the 1960s Kirkeby is influenced by pop art and minimalism, and he fetches his motives from among others. magazines and comics, and use synthetic lacquers rather than classic oil colors. But in the mid-1970s he changed his expression, now he uses oil on canvas in an abstract expressionistic style.
