Iceland’s Street Art

Whilst it wasn’t something I expected to see on my trip to Iceland, I was pleased to stumble upon a lot of street art murals, especially in the capital Reykjavik. I’ve become a fan of these since my home city of Christchurch has embraced this form of art during its post-earthquake rebuild. Potentially there are more to discover in the parts of the city that I didn’t visit, but there were plenty to see on a wander round.

  4. Oh street art in Reykjavik is amazing !! I recognised some of these and it brings back nice memories 🙂

    • Since they became popular in my home city of Christchurch I now see street art everywhere I go. I really enjoy seeing them. Makes an otherwise drab wall or drab street beautiful.
