Unique Murals Project in Reykjavík, Iceland

Street art is often the domain of rogue individuals wielding a can of spray paint. In most cities, the result is unsightly graffiti. A few cities across the world sponsor and carefully select both the painters and their themes, yielding marvelous outdoor art. Reykjavík may be unique because ten of the murals adorning city center were a collaboration between accomplished visual and musical artists. For each project, a musician would write a song and the muralist would create their interpretation. Here, Caratoes painted Ylja’s song “Óður til móður.” The title means, “Oh, mother.” The event called Wallpoetry was organized in 2015 by Iceland Airways.
