Nice childish fun is the order of the day. Hand inked with Photoshop for colour. It was originally a sunny day but i liked the dramatic lighting effect in the moody evening colours. Hope you like.

Street Art in Reykjavík.

Posted in Art, Illustration, Photography, Strike Three on April 12, 2009 by strikethreeuk

Some interesting things I saw last week whilst roaming the streets of Reykjavík . . . Some of the pictures aren’t done justice by the resolution, but hey; don’t hate the player, hate the game. If anyone wants any of the flicks in hi-res, feel free to mail me. Before you say anything, there was quite a lot of graffiti, but not much of it impressed me enough to stop. There was one huge spot near the seafront with a building totally covered up to about 40 foot in the air . . but i missed it! I’m sure it’s on the net somewhere.

Hey, look at that, I have a gallery function (looks a bit cack really though doesn’t it . . .?).

The etched photos in the third picture are by an Icelandic photographer named Johannes Kjartansson. Check out his site here. Those particular photos are under the section named ‘Sirkusar/Sirkus Years’. Lovely.

EDIT: A quick and friendly email reply from Mr. Kjartansson revealed that the photos on the wall were taken inside the popular Sirkus bar, which used to be inside the red house. Unfortunately, it was knocked down to build a shopping centre, which is now unlikely be built! Mystery solved.
