  • The Greek artist Lefteris Yakoumakis is now for the fourth time in here in Siglufjörður. He first stayed in the Artist in residence Herhúsið in December 2010. Came back for a short visit in August 2012, and then be stayed here from August 2013 to March 2014, when he did drawings which were later published in the book ”55 ways to pronounce the word Siglufjörður". He came again in January this year and plans to stay until October. Now he is making a graphic novel. Beside his art work, Lefteris works in the local fish and prawn industry here in Siglufjörður.

    The good connection between this talented and nice Greek and some of the local people, is one more fine example of the positive impact of Herhúsið in our community. We have had many very creative and good people visiting it, and as some of you may remember Jonathan Harris stayed there for some time while working on the Cowbird.
