Biografia:

Born 1964 in Copenhagen, Denmark, where he grew up in a musical home, therefore from his childhood, Stefan Blöndal was always surrounded by art.
From his 14th year on, Stefan Blöndal began his artistic career, creating pencil, ink, and charcoal drawings in a more determined manner in the drawing class at the famous Danish museum the Glyptotek. And already this year, he was a prize-winner in a drawing competition in Denmark. "Ever since he began working seriously, this Danish artist has", as art critic Alexandra Anderson-Spivy wrote, "resolutely - and consistently - rejected the theoretical conventions of much contemporary art. He has, as they say, "marched to his own drummer"".
 
During these years, his other passion was birds of prey. He even got an education as a falconer in England and had his own peregrine falcon at his home. And naturally, his big detailled drawings reflected this interest.

At the age of 20, Stefan Blöndal met his future wife, Nina Kavtaradze, a celebrated Russian pianist from Moscow, who has had an enormous influence on his pictures, both as a model and a critic. As a matter of  fact, it was she, who set him off with oilpainting, that opened up an entirely new dimension to his solid background as a black-and-white artist. 
In 1987, Stefan Blöndal had his first exhibition "with a collection of powerful paintings" - (as a critic wrote) - in Copenhagen at the renowned exhibition hall "Den Frie", (The Independent). Since then, he has participated in numerous group- and solo exhibitions in Denmark, Sweden, Germany, France, Monaco, the United Arab Emirates and England.
