Davíð Örn Halldórsson

Born in 1976 - Iceland


Davíð Örn Halldórsson (b. 1976) lives and works in Reykjavík. Halldórsson mainly works with painting as he has done since graduating from the Visual Arts department of The Icelandic Academy of the Arts in 2002. In this time, Halldórsson has explored unconventional methods of painting; painting and spraying with different paints on found objects. His earlier works are often composed of painted installations, painting on found furniture, floors, ceilings and walls.

Davíð Örn Halldórsson’s works are often based on events of the daily life; a personal processing of his surroundings, carried out in a visual language, which references cartoons, graffiti, Pop-Art and Western Art History. His background in printing is as well evident in his works; it is the material ground on which the artist builds his practice on.

Davíð Örn Halldórsson has held several solo exhibitions and participated in group exhibitions in Iceland and internationally. In the year 2013 he received the prestigious Carnegie Art Award grant to a younger artist.
