Thorgrimur is an Icelandic artist, born in Reykjavík in 1980. He spent his teens composing and performing music before enrolling at the School of Audio Engineering in London at the age of 23. After London, musical aspirations led him to the Royal Conservatory in den Haag, Holland, from where he graduated in 2010.
However, having acquired an interest in oil painting during his stay, he found he was further able to articulate his creative outlet in a visual medium, and has almost exclusively focused his attentions on oil painting since then.
