Street art in Reykjavik


A few weeks ago, I went on an awe-inspiring road-trip through Iceland with Mr.A and two of our closest friends in Stockholm. Although it will take me a while to recount all those breath-taking views and experiences we shared along the way, let me start with Reykjavik, our port of entry & exit. Like I do on all my trips, I tried to capture the spirit of the city through its vibrant street art. At least a few years ago, the authorities in Reykjavik were not very supportive of this form of art. Not sure where they stand now, but I was happy to find a lot of color along Laugavegur, Reykjavik’s hep main street, leading up to the beautiful harbor area of Gamla Höfn. Take a look 🙂

    • Hallo there, very nice to meet you too 😊 I lived in Melbourne for a while a few years ago, and travelled in the east quite a bit, but never got a chance to go as far as Burnbury… Melbourne also has some very cool street art around Degraves Street, have you been?
