Tattoo and airbrush artist, Ýrr Baldursdóttir has created a youthful portrait of Iceland’s prime minister, Sigmundur Davíð Gunnlaugsson.
The black and white portrait will be on display in the Progressive Party offices for this week or until it is sold. All proceeds will be donated to the National University Children’s Hospital.
Ýrr told the Progressive Party that she wanted to create a piece to help a good cause and hopes that the portrait of the Prime Minister, plus a portrait of Finance Minister, Bjarni Benediktsson, will sell quickly and for a good chunk of money as December is a month where families with sick children can use all the help they can get.
Everyone is welcome to visit the portrait during office hours at Hverfisgata 33 and to bid on it though the lowest bid accepted will be 300.000 ISK ($2260).
