Based in Reykjavík, Steingrímur Gauti graduated from the Iceland Academy of the Arts in 2015, having also studied at Universität der Künste Berlin and the Reykjavík School of Visual Arts.

On the process of painting, he says: “In a way painting for me is a form of meditation – a way to channel incoherent thoughts into something tangible. I start working and something happens – the painting takes me where it wants to go. It is what it is; it is everything and it is nothing. It’s an escape from reality and a reflection of it at the same time.”
