Tóroddur Poulsen is a poet, musician and graphic artist. This versatile artistic approach is reflected in his poetry which has a strong audio-visual expression. He made his debut in 1984 with the poetry collection Botnfall, and has since been very productive in all three art forms. It is safe to say that all his works have a provocative and humoristic style, which he carries out with an acute awareness of artistic manifestation.
