Stefan hails from Iceland but he has a strong connection with the USA as his father was from Kentucky. This duality, among other things, was a major factor in his decision to become a painter. These days, he lives in Akureyri – a town in northern Iceland, which is not too far from the Arctic Circle.
There are a few recurring themes in Stefan’s work – theatrically staged compositions, myths, and a kind of a symbolic meditations on nature, humans the sky, Earth and stars. The aura of objects and animals. In some senses, it is a kind of a nature worship.
