Street art in Reykjavik

img_9710

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 🙂

DIY Wall art

I was scouting the internet for some inspiration to paint a canvas that had been lying around the apartment for a while. All I knew was that it was supposed to be black & white & abstract. That’s quite a wide specification, I know. Lucky for me, I stumbled upon Ayisha’s post about her DIY wall art. Thank you, Ayisha, for the inspiration 🙂 Just some swirls of black paint, and ta-da! we have something new to put up on the walls. I might use this as a prototype to make a bigger one next time. Or I’ll just go scouting again, the internet is a superb place for inspiration, isn’t it?!
