Icelandic Artist Moving To South American Jungle

Published September 6, 2012

Artist Snorri Ásmundsson has announced that he is moving to the rain forests of Suriname, and is selling his works to help fund the trip.
Snorri is a conceptual artist, and has initiated such happenings as running for both mayor and president, creating an “advice helpline” phone number for those wishing to call him for council, and creating a series of “Healing Paintings”, among other projects. He last made the news at Grapevine when he offered to pay $25 a day for 12,000 years for an apartment in Manhattan.
While it is unknown if his offer was ever accepted, he has announced to the press that he intends to move to Suriname – a small Dutch-speaking country with some of the densest and most pristine rain forests in South America – to “live in a house in the jungle with rain forest Indians and pink river dolphins for neighbours.” There, he intends to work on his art.
However, through the next week he will still be in Iceland, and is hoping to fund his trip by selling some of his art. Those interested can visit the artist at his studio, Liborius, located between Mýrargata and Nýlendagata, but he advises that potential visitors call first, at 6929526.
