Haraldur has had six private exhibitions in Iceland, which all attracted a lot of attention. His first private show was at the tender age of twenty-one, in London. His world of creativity is filled with colors, landscapes, people and clowns, reflecting his pure joy of life.

Haraldur, who enjoys travelling the world, gaining a wider perspective in his art, can in fact be called an international artist. However true, he always remains close to his Icelandic origins.
