Thorgrimur Einarsson


Thorgrimur is an Icelandic artist, born in Reykjavík in 1980. Whenever possible, he prefers to work from direct observation, believing it to be the optimum way of creating an authentic look. Even though he finds inspiration in a variety of subjects the landscape, his greatest passion, continually finds its way to his canvas.

Working in the Alla Prima style of painting, Thorgrimur expresses his subject in what he likes to describe as painterly realism. Maintaining an emphasis on “accurate” drawing, values and color, he aspires to capture his subject as honestly as possible while articulating its emotional impact.

"Horses are beautiful, powerful but gentle creatures. The Icelandic horse changes its coat with the seasons to cope with the harsh winters. They look like fluffy furballs in the winter and majestic in the summer. I’ve always been in awe of them standing out in the blizzard, turning their backs to the wind seemingly unfazed by the chaos of life. They have always captured my imagination."
