Höfundur: Gunnar B. Kvaran

Ásmundur Sveinsson was one of the pioneers of Icelandic sculpture and was first and foremost inspired by Icelandic nature and literature, as well as by the people itself. His massive, powerful and sometimes provocative works are akin to the wondrouse formations that can be seen in Icelandic nature. Drawing on main artistic currents, he adapted international styles to create works with a distinctive national character.
