Sigurur rni Sigursson was born in Akureyri 1963. He has been working in visual arts both in France and Iceland since his graduation from Institut des Hautes tudes en Art Plastiques, Paris 1991. He has held dozens of solo exhibitions and his work is owned by all the major museums in Iceland as well as several ones in Europe. Artworks by Sigurur can be found in several public spaces: Slalda at Sultartangavirkjun, the glass piece Ljs skugga at Hl, the seniors home in Akureyri, and the outdoor piece L'Eloge de la Nature in Loupian, Pyrnes-Mditerrane, France.

Sigurur rnis art draws the viewers attention towards the connection between reality and ideas and the relationship between objects and appearance. His artworks are a dialogue of spaces: the space between the two-dimensional and the three-dimensional, background and foreground, light and shadow.
