New Exhibition in Artótek Gallery

By Iceland Review

An exhibition of the works of Icelandic visual artist Bjarni Helgason “Landslag í ljósaskiltum” (“Landscape in Neon Signs”) opened in the gallery space Artótek inside Reykjavík City Library on Friday.

The artist describes his work as modern landscape painting where the ordinary is made extraordinary and the familiar exciting by directing the viewer’s attention to the cityscape, which passes by without people noticing.

Helgason graduated with a master’s degree in media arts from the Kent Institute of Art & Design in the UK in 2004. Apart from working as an artist, Helgason has also worked as a graphic designer at advertising agencies and as a teacher as the Iceland Academy of the Arts.

The exhibition runs through December 7.
