Gudmundur Thoroddsen was born in 1980 in Reykjavik, Iceland. He received his MFA Degree at the School of Visual Arts in New York in 2011 and his BFA Degree from the Iceland Academy of the Arts in 2003. In between earning degrees he has lived, studied and worked as an artist in various places on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. Life and death; history and ancestry; shit and gold are reoccurring themes in Gudmundur’s work, which are derived from his own confusing position within a failing patriarchy.
