Bus driver opens art exhibition

Thórhallur Sigurdsson, who works as a bus driver in Reykjavík, opened his first art exhibition last weekend and plans to become a full-time painter.

“I have painted for the last four years, but not enough, though. Now I want to put my full effort into this because I have always wanted to be a painter by profession,” Sigurdsson told Fréttabladid.

He has also worked a bus driver for the last four years and says his job and hobby compliment each other because he mostly paints people and gets inspired at work. Sigurdsson’s three-month-old daughter, Eldey Björk, has also been an inspiration to him and his exhibition is dedicated to her.

Sigurdsson’s paintings are on display at Gallerý Úlfur in Reykjavík and can be viewed until February 20. The exhibition is called “Faedings upphafs” (“The Birth of a New Beginning”).
