Something that I wasn’t expecting to find in Reykjavik was amazing street art. Everything I read about Reykjavik never mentioned all the colourful art all over the city. Independent stores commissioning murals for their walls, public art seems to be a big deal around these parts. I wish Leeds and Wakefield had more public art work. It not only adds colour to the city but also adds to its personality.
I wish we had spent more time in Reykjavik it’s self so I could hunt down all the street art in the day light.
The stores with art work on their walls also made me happy. It seems such a simple thing to have the store logo painted on the your store front, it made the store stand out and well I had to go inside and have a look around. Yes I’m a sucker for good marketing.
I hope you enjoyed this post! Hunting out all these pieces of art was my favourite and I would love to come back to Reykjavik in the summer months to try to find all the art around the city. I can only hope more street art will appear closer to home.
You can find most of these amazing pieces of art while walking to the Hallgrimskirkja Church
