Rey Saem was born in Iceland in 1956. He studied architecture in Copenhagen, Denmark and graduated in 1988. As a member of the Architect Union, he curated many exhibitions which included architecture and art from 1989 until 1993. Later, he started painting and making sculptures. He moved to Toronto in 2009 and continued painting. His first art show was in September 2017 at Gallery 1313, called Five. This refers to the fact that when he was five years old, he decided to leave my family and move to the moon, build a house on the moon and start fishing for stars.

Creating art started as a hobby for me. I remember at a young age, I drew and painted mostly portraits of family and friends. But, over the years, it faded slowly and I had other things that I got occupied with. I was usually doodling here and there and I always had an active imagination and felt I needed to express myself and my thoughts. So, I found a pen and paper and began drawing my ideas. It was an ideal getaway from the day-to-day working life, and I started creating an archive of thoughts and visions to work on and enhance.

I'm a young tattoo artist who has recently moved to Toronto from Sochi, Russia. I have completed a tattooing course in Krasnodar, Russia. After returning home, I did tattooing for one year. At the moment I'm working on my own but would like to start work at a salon as I feel I could use the platform for getting my work out there as it is my specialty.
