The Kjarval Experience

Iceland’s favorite artist Johannes Sveinsson Kjarval (1885-1972) grew up in the Borgarfjordur district and remained connected to the beautiful fjord his life through. In 2002 the Kjarval Experience opened in the Fjardaborg community center to show this famous painter's connections with the fjord and some aspects of his life. The exhibition pays tribute to the man and his work with prints of his portrait drawings of locals, movies and media clips.
