Reykjavik Street Art- January ’14

Street Art in Reykjavik, Iceland

This “map” of Iceland on Hverfisgata is made from bits of glass and mirror, and looks wonderful in the sunlight. There’s a magnificent, enormous bouquet of mushrooms and other colorful fungi on the opposite wall in this overgrown little lot. I recommend checking it out.

Honestly, go behind almost any building on Laugavegur and Hverfisgata and you fill find great art. I think the misc appliances and electronics in this little courtyard are a great addition to the piece.
