Eitt bros getur dimmu í dagsljós breytt
Fáar ljóðlínur lýsa betur því hvernig við getum haft góð áhrif hvert á annað, það fylgir því ábyrgð að vera manneskja og öll viljum við standa undir þeirri ábyrgð.
Þannig hef ég á seinni árum frekar lagt áhersu á að myndir mínar kölluðu framm gleði og ánæju hjá áhorfandanum.
Sólin og brosið eru eitt í verum mínum, sólin er er aflvaki allrar sköpunar, sem ekki ekki fer síst fram með því að búa til skugga og skynvillur þetta er ekki einfalt.
Eitt bros getur dimmu í dagsljós breytt,
sem dropi breytir veig heillar skálar.
Þel getur snúist við atorð eitt.
Aðgát skal höfð í nærveru sálar.
Svo oft leyndist strengur í brjósti,
við biturt andsvar, gefið án saka.
Hve iðrar margt líf eitt augnakast,
sem aldrei verður tekið til baka
Hluti úr ljóði: Einar Ben (1864-1940)
Few poetry lines describe how we can have a good impact on each other, it follows the responsibility to be a person and we all want to undergo that responsibility.
Thus, in recent years, I have further emphasized that my photos make pepole feel joy in live.
The sun and the smile are often motiefs in my paintings, the sun is the power for all creativity, the light is alsow creating shadow and making illusion for senses, this is not simple.
One smile can change a darkness into daylight,
as a drop can change the surface of a water bowl.
A wall can be reversed with only a touch.
Caution should be kept in the presence of a mind.
How often existed hope in a breast, that broke,
with a bitter response, given without a cause.
How much life one regrets by one single moment
that never can be taken back.
It is written by Einar Ben (1864-1940)

Lives and work as an artist in Reykjavik.
Alter ego DADILISTO
I was born in Reykjavik: May 12, 1954. Grow up Kópavogur close to Reykavik, which was mostly built by refugees, who were not allocated land in Reykjavík for political reasons. Good time for children to play in half builded houses, or go to a small shelter and listen to the communist.
When I was 12 y.o. I decided to become a painter and, as my father resisted, it would not turn back.
After I have learnd Carpentry to make my father happy, I went to The school of Arts and Crafts, and ended up learning experimental art and new art media, I could take all the risks, I had lernd very practical profession to be able to make a living. I did not get started with creating so called “New media”, but began do painting with the good old oil colours. I was a part of movement in the eighties called “New Painting”. I then studied in Amsterdam for a year, mostly of graphic printing, but that time was a great gift for me, since I started working as a professional and have done so mostly since 1983.
I’ve been very lucky! I was one of the first to do, so called “New Panting” in Iceland, this promotion drew attention and I started selling my art works and could make a living in a decent life, all the time until the lucky famous “collapse” of the banks in Ieland, but at that time people mostly have to use their money in pay-as-you-go debt created by our economic system in Iceland, probably one of the worst in the world.
After that crash, I have been doing some extra work: teaching, city walk with tourist and so on, I have alsow been having pepole visiting my studio with some home-made food. But also received a grants.gov support for big exhibition in Art museum: Kjarvalsadir in 2011. This period has been nice, always good to get new challenges especially if one manages to take advantage of them. I recently had an exhibition of Mokka Kaffi in Reykjavik hat was successful.
I have been doing Sahajayoga for many years and have volunteered to teach and introduce.
