Erró’s travels play an important role in the creation of his works. Wherever he goes, he collects hundreds of images. He brings them together in collages which, enlarged, lead to paintings. The idea of travel, of displacement, appears in many works through the use of motifs such as planes, rockets, trains, birds, horses, or even superheroes. It manifests itself in a specific way in the series about “Mao’s world tour”, “space travels” and “North African women”.

All the works are owned by Reykjavík Art Museum.
