About the Artist
Born in 1981, Reykjavík, Iceland where I currently live and work. After having experimented in all kinds of mediums and artforms throughout my life I fell in love with the beautiful duo of oil paint and the art brush. That happened in 2016 and I have not put down the brush since. I consider myself to be an expressive oil painter that likes the challenge of taking on all kinds of motives. Be it the human figure, a landscape, a portrait, a bird or a flower it does not matter as I try to take on all kinds of motives without any fear. While my paintings are accurate in proportions and the basic building of the painting is probably in the direction of realism I like to bend the image around the realism. That means big brush strokes, deconstruction of some elements of the painting and just whatever I feel is needed to create something extraordinary that intrigues the viewer.
