Úlfur Karlsson

Icelandic artist, born 1988, active in Strasbourg. Úlfur Karlsson has been represented by galleries and venues worldwide, and is critically spoken of as an expressive prodigy, characterized by big gestures and a frenetic but also fragile style. Úlfur Karlsson works primarily with painting in large format and has a background as an experimental film director. The editions in the FACE collection are dominant and extrovert, forming shattered portraits of contemporary life. Here you find traces of comic books and vibrant urban scenery - but also solemn nostalgia, memory and history
