Images: Street Art in Reykjavik, Iceland

Art flourishes in Iceland’s capital city, Reykjavik. It is a place where not everyone achieves their goals of opening a well-known design shop, penning a great piece of literature or making a living from being a guitar player, but everyone is supported in their creative pursuits anyway. Creativity—and the resulting pursuit for happiness—is embraced and vibrant in this city where funky shops sit on every street corner and people generously share their artistic talents with whoever will listen/read/watch.

One of the things I most enjoyed about Reykjavik was the prevalence of street art. I chose to experience much of my time in the city with my camera tucked away, so I didn’t capture a fraction of what I saw splashed across the city’s walls. Know that if you ever make a trip to Reykjavik you can expect to see so much more than what is presented in the slideshow below.

    I just love “artsy” places – they never fail to inspire me.

      Same with me, and Reykjavik is particularly welcome to creativity. It just makes me happy when a city can appreciate this kind of thing without just writing it off as graffiti.

    Awesome art, Reykjavik (had to cheat to spell that!) seems like such a cool city, I’m not surprised it has such cool art.
