ICELANDIC, BORN 1984
Baldur Helgason is an Icelandic visual artist who lives and works in Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood. Through his work, Helgason experiments with the depiction of the human figure, playfully exaggerating the features and toying with representation of human emotions.
While playful and humorous on the surface, a lot of these images are actually portraying anxiety, loneliness, and melancholy, all presented through the extraordinarily ordinary life of his iconic comic-like character.
