[1960– 1988] Bandarískur listamaður
I start a picture and I finish it. I don't think about art while I work. I try to think about life.
I thought I was going to be a bum the rest of my life.
I was a really lousy artist as a kid. Too abstract expressionist, or I'd draw a ram's head, really messy. I'd never win painting contests. I remember losing to a guy who did a perfect spiderman.
I had some money, I made the best paintings ever. I was completely reclusive, worked a lot, took a lot of drugs. I was awful to people.
Believe it or not, I can actually draw.
Since I was 17 I thought I might be a star.
