Reykjavik Street Art July 2015

Back in 2012, we visited Iceland (Golden Circle and Reykjavík) for a scant 4 days and barely got to see much in terms of street art. See A Few Reykjavík Murals. This time, we spent 12 days in Iceland and 4 of them in Reykjavík, so a little bit more street art to show. Turns out the many of the key murals from 2012 were in the Heart Park (Hjartatorg) or Heart Garden (Hjartagarðurinn), which is a big (controversial) construction site now.

I've grouped the street art photographed in to the following (perhaps nonsensical categories):
