A number of new art exhibitions opened in Reykjavík last weekend during Culture Night, including an untitled exhibition by Dadi Gudbjörnsson in the Artótek gallery at Reykjavík City Library.
“Fjalllist” (“Mountain Art”) by Dadi Gudbjörnsson.
Gudbjörnsson mostly works with graphics and paints with watercolors and oil. In an interview published in the exhibition’s brochure, the artist stated he is “a clutz by nature” yet points out that the hand’s connection with the consciousness is the most direct way towards creation, a press release reveals.
The exhibition runs until October 3.
