Iceland is full of artists, poets, musicians, designers, and writers.
And those few who don't feel the urge to create are gallery patrons, poetry slam attendees, concert goers, art and book buyers.
No wonder Reykjavik has some of the best graffiti artists I've seen and they're revered as part of the city's charms.
The impact of some of these installations is enough to stop you mid stride and inspire you to dig out your camera and snap for awhile.
My favorite pieces not only stun with their impact, but also make creative use of the shapes and constraints of the particular walls they're on.
