how it started
I'm Stefán Yngvi and I'm a full-time artist and illustrator from Iceland. In 2017 I started combining art with activism. The causes that I advocate for are all close to my heart, such as animal liberation, climate justice and LGBTQ+ rights. With my artwork, I hope to plant seeds and create a discussion for a more sustainable lifestyle so all species can have a future on this planet.
I sell my artwork on various merchandise to both sustain myself as an artist and give back to the world. With the sales of my artwork I support organisations and causes by donating a percentage of my profit.
You can support me as an artist by buying from my shop or becoming a Patron for as little as $2 per month.
Why it matters
We only have one planet that we can call our home. This planet has given us so much and up until now we have just been taking and taking without giving any thought to how that might affect the Earth.
"There is enough on Earth for everybody's need, but not enough for everybody's greed."
Every year the world is hitting global limits in its use of resources and yet the global population is rising at a rate of 9000 new humans per hour!
We must take responsibility for ourselves and our lifestyle if we want to have a future on this planet for our children. One person can't do everything but we can all do something. Together we can inspire and empower others to a greener and more sustainable future!
