ásta vilhelmína

Ásta Vilhelmína Guðmundsdóttir is an iceland based artist and fashion designer. Ásta´s artworks and designs are often inspired by the ever changing Icelandic nature. Her creations are as rustic and contrasting as the Icelandic storms and eruptions - yet dreamlike at the same time. Ásta´s works evoke a strong bond with nature, bordering on the savage and the mythical. Ásta studied in Germany and has been designing for her own fashion label since the year 2000. For the last few years, Ásta has been expressing herself more and more with installations and sculptures. She has participated in numerous exhibitions, symposiums and residencies in Iceland and abroad.
