Those who follow my Instagram will probably have caught a few cheeky snaps of Iceland. I went with Dan and my parents in the hope of seeing the Northern Lights and we were lucky enough to catch more than a glimpse. But as my photos were so poor of that, I decided to focus on the street art I saw instead.

Now Reykjavik, the capital where I stayed, has the odd experience of being more like a large town than a city. In fact, it’s not much of a surprise when there are little more than 300,000 Icelanders IN TOTAL. But another thing I was struck by was just how much street art there was. I always find European cities seem more riddled with graffiti than London for example, but here I am talking about art as opposed to tagging. And as seems to have become the norm with my art related posts, I’ll let the pictures do the talking.

Okay so this one is not strictly street art, but more like shop window art instead. But how cool is that?!

  1. I see what you mean about the street art. I love the way they seem to embrace it in Reykjavik rather than cover it up.

    I loved the trip by the way – Iceland is a very special place for sure.
