About Jon Arnar

I was born in Reykjavik, Iceland in 1960. I am educated as electrical engineer, stockbroker and MBA. In 1997 I first experimented in oil paintings which resulted a solo exhibition in the year 2000. I have been using pen and pencil in making my artworks since I was a kid. I gradually strengthened my techniques with oil colors with studies in Reykjavik School of Visual Art from 2001 - 2003. Since then I have participated in 15 exhibitions. I am a music and nature lover and the themes emerge in his paintings.
