Apart from her studies in Political Science at the universities of Iceland and Trier in Germany, Klara has always been attracted to Art in general and painting in particular, a hobby she has practiced since her early childhood.
Klara Gunnlaugsdottir is an Icelandic painter who has been living in Brittany, France for many years. This is how she deepened her pictorial research and her technique to the point of making it her new professional activity since this change of life had as a consequence to stop her previous career.
The singularity of Klara Gunnlaugsdottir's painting is based on a contemporary abstract style often inspired by nature, in particular the landscapes of her native Iceland. Indeed, the Painter grew up in a small town near Reykjavik, surrounded by lava fields on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other.
During her career, Klara Gunnlaugsdottir has had several solo exhibitions and participated in various group exhibitions in France, England and Iceland. She joined Art Trope Gallery in 2022. Her paintings are in Private Collections in more than twenty countries on four continents.
