New Photography Exhibition in Reykjavík

The exhibition “IKAE & Da Boyz” by photographer and visual artist Oddvar Örn Hjartarson opens in the Reykjavík Museum of Photography today. The artist’s staged photographs are considered playful and colorful.

Hjartarson is a very versatile artist. He is also an accomplished stylist, hairdresser and make-up artist and has worked in advertising.

According to a press release, Hjartarson is probably best known for his cooperation with Icelandic pop star Páll Óskar; he shot the cover photo for Páll Óskar’s best-selling Silfursafn silver collection.

The exhibition comprises of two items: “IKAE,” which has ideological roots in so-called IKEA pictures which Hjartarson presents in a new context, and “Da Boyz,” a series of pretty boys where rainbow colors are presented in different ways.

The exhibition runs through April 6.
