DesignMarch 2014 - Dýr(ð/s)legur draumur - Solo exhibition - Kiosk:
I was commissioned to decorate the windows of Kiosk, a local design store.
The windows are irregular in shape and depth and I used the shape to create optical trickery within a pattern of black and white leaves and flowers in a jungle motif.
The painting took a few evenings and accidentally became a bit of a tourist attraction with many photographs and videos being taken of the event.

Fourteen artists were asked to partake in an exhibition in one of the theatres in Reykjavík for DesignMarch. We all got the same assignment which was to design a poster for the play "The curious incident of the dog in the night time" by Mark Haddon.

DesignMarch 2014 - Fegursta orðið - Group exhibition - FÍT - Þjóðmenningarhúsið:
