Gardar Eide Einarsson (Norwegian, b. 1976) is an artist whose work encompasses installation, printmaking, painting and sculpture. In his work, he critically explores various forms of social transgression and arguments for political subversion and appropriates and recontextualizes imagery from subcultures. His artistic practice comprises a wide range of media, such as text, installations, and drawing.[1]

Einarsson’s work incorporates acts of appropriation and the re-contextualization of imagery and information. He adopts and endows elements of cultural ephemera with a political charge, attempting to transform various materials into signifiers of dissent. His sources range from book cover graphics, mail-order catalogues, police instruction manuals, everyday objects and institutional architecture.[2]

He lives and works in New York City and Tokyo.
