Erro artworks and editions
The islandic artist Erro is well-known in Europe for his narrative figuration paintings. His large-scale paintings of strikingly figurative representations are strongly influenced by pop art which Erro got to know during his stay in New York City in 1963. Erro was also influence by the surrealists during his time in Paris in 1958 als well as his contact to Any Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.
Narrative figuration is also said to be the European pop art. Erro reflects on popular culture and plays with humor, moral and criticism. He is also concerned with politically and socially relevant topics such as violence and sexuality.
Today, Erro’s artworks and editions are displayed in well-known museums such as the Louvre in Paris, the Bristish Museum in London and the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam. Since 2001 the Reykjavik Art Museum has its own exhibition space dedicated the large collection donated by Erro himself.
