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.
