Icelandic painter and litographer
1961-1966 Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen
Represented in many museums in the nordic countries. Tryggvi Olafsson’s art gallery opened in 2001 – in Neskaupstadur, Iceland, the town where he was born.
Tryggvi Olafsson has lived for more than thirty five years in Denmark. He express himself in a personal, modern and lyric language of painting. He finds the motives in our time of the big city life style, where entireities are mixed together with antique fragments.
Characteristic of TO’s paintings is his emphasis on contours, which give his paintings the appearance of intarsia-works in a clear colouring.
