    Traffic signs 2014

    Yes, here is the famous photo that illustrates the home page of my website. I took it in Reykjavík (not sure where, I think it must have been in one of the streets in the North-East of Hallgrímskirkja, probably Bergþórugata, which several times I walked along) on the twenty-third of September of 2017 during my second visit to Iceland.

    There were more examples of this kind of traffic-sign high-culture bombing, two of which I photographed (next two pictures). They seemed to have totally vanished In my subsequent visits (2016 and 2017). Perhaps the authorities were unwilling to tolerate this form of illustrated vandalism... I think they were really cool, quite sensitively placed, with no sign of aggressive message, a kind of high cusine delicatessen in city vandalic art.
