While in Iceland for the Reyjavik International Film Festival, Director Jon Reiss and I (Co Producer, Harrison Bohrman) were invited to be part of a city hall panel on graffiti and street art.
Artist Thordis Claessen, author of the Icelandic street art book, ICEPICK, was also there (far left) in addition to government official, Jakob Magnusson (second on the right).
Debates over art, personal expression and free space in Iceland seem to be heating up and it was an amazing event to be a part of.
We’ll make sure to keep you posted on what comes of the panel and the future of graffiti in Iceland.
Thanks to everyone who came out to the event!
