About

Nú Ninja is a cultural platform for Scandinavian art & culture, created by Helga Mjöll Oddsdóttir, based in Barcelona. Our mission is to facilitate access to the Nordic contemporary art of any genre and thereby contributing to the diversity of the already culture-rich society.

We base our work on the principles of the term cultural diversity, which is the idea of everybody making a positive contribution to the larger society by sharing their culture.

In our Ninjashop you will find hand-picked Nordic items that we find to be authentic and good representatives of our modern culture.

In our article section and on our social media channels we share information about Nordic artists and cultural phenomenons.

We are always looking for ways to work with other creatives that share our goal of serving the arts. If you want to start a conversation with us, don’t hesitate to send us a line.
