Kristinn Örn is an Icelandic-born digital artist, 3d designer, photographer & videographer. He lives and creates his art in Reykjavik, Iceland. He likes to mix photos, backgrounds, 3d designs & drawings together to create his art. Sometimes it is simple process, but on other days, it is more complex. When he creates his work, he looks into old stories and histories. Sometimes he creates fantasy just from his mind.
Kristinn’s style of artwork is from beautiful fine art composition to colourful abstract form or black & white.
He attended the SAE Institute in England, where he learned part of his skills in 3d designs & animation. He has been learning Photoshop Artistry/Fine Art Grunge Composition with the group AWAKE. He is part of Kaizen, a dedicated group to create digital art.
He has received numerous international awards for his artwork in both online and “bricks and mortar” art exhibitions. In addition, his photos & artwork has been published in magazines and are in public and private collections worldwide.
My creative work includes work with photos, backgrounds, graphics, textures, 3d designs and more media. I like to explore histories, stories, dreams, and life as it is. I use my artwork to tell a story, it could be something that I have seen, heard, read, or it is just in my mind. It could be fantasy, fairytale, history or today’s news. Sometimes I do work for others but I use my own style to do the work.
It has always been creative in my backbones & I remember when I was a little boy, I was always drawing & when I got my first camera I was taking photos of everything. Then I got into video & editing business, colour correction and motion graphics. I have been working there in the television field.
When I create art, I often listen to music & it will stimulate my mind and I can focus more on what I am working on. I did find out that different music change how I create different artwork. To clear my mind I sometimes go for a walk or hike into the mountains. I sometimes start just with the colour themes or one photo & work from there. On the other hand I sometimes plan everything in front and use all of my skills, textures and materials to do what I have planned to create.
