Erró
Erró is best known for his collage-style paintings, densely populated with a wide array of characters: infamous figures such as Mao, Hitler or Stalin appear next to art icons such as Picasso, van Gogh or Leger and are accompanied by cartoon and comic characters ranging from Red Sonja to Mickey Mouse.

Erró counts as one of the great pioneers of 20th-century art. In the past 50 years, the artist has created a unique body of work that defies all categorization and has lost none of its resonance. Born Gudmundur Gudmundsson in 1932 in Ólafsvik, Iceland, he studied from 1952 to 1954 at the Art Academy in Reykjavik and Oslo. Subsequently he went to Ravenna and Florence and became involved in the techniques of fresco painting and mosaic art. In 1958, he moved to Paris and joined the international avant-garde. Strongly influenced by the revival of Surrealism in the mid-1960s, he developed his own form of critical/ironic collage painting amidst the 'new realism' and Pop Art trends that were unfolding in Europe and the US.
