Bald by Baldur
Baldur Helgason is an Icelandic visual artist who lives and works in Chicago. He graduated from Iceland Academy of the Arts in 2008 and from the Academy of Art University in San Fransisco in 2011. During that same year he was chosen by the SF as one of the city's most prominent artists.
This will be Baldur's first solo exhibition in Iceland, where he'll exhibit new pen and ink works from 2015 and 2016. Baldur seeks out his inspiration from popular culture, cartoons, old Icelandic manuscripts and religious imagery. His works often depict dystopian bald characters, that pop up again and again.
