Hallgrímur Helgason


'Hallgrímur Helgason was born on February 18th 1959 in Reykjavík. He studied at the Art Academy of Iceland from 1979-1980, and at the Art Academy of Munich from 1981-1982. Since then, he has worked as both an artist and writer.

His first novel, Hella, was published in 1990, followed by several others, as well as one collection of poetry. His novel 101 Reykjavik (1996) drew immediate attention and was subsequently translated throughout Scandinavia, Europe, and England. In 1999 it was nominated for the Nordic Council's Literary Award. A movie of the book, directed by Baltasar Kormákur, one of Iceland's leading film makers, was produced in 2000 and released worldwide. Baltasar also adapted Hallgrímur's novel, Þetta er allt að koma (Almost There) for the stage. It premiered at the National Theatre of Iceland, directed by Baltasar, in 2004.

Hallgrímur's diverse body of work includes plays for both radio and theatre, essays on society and culture for various newspapers, as well as performing stand-up comedy. As an artist, Hallgrímur has had over 20 solo exhibitions in Iceland, Boston, New York, Paris, and Malmo, Sweden; and has been included in over thirty collective exhibitions across the globe. Hallgrímur Helgason lives and works in Reykjavik' Icelandic Literatur
