THE "BÁRÐUR" MYTH

HELLISSANDUR - ICELAND

I had the wonderful opportunity to visit Iceland and leave my artistic mark on its walls in 2018. Through a local project to make Hellissandur the capital of street art in Iceland. More than 20 artists worldwide were summoned to fill the walls of this small town with color and rescue some abandoned buildings. More than 25 murals were painted in different locations in a month, and mine was one of the largest, and mine was one of the largest one. Each artist received one of the local stories, and for my fortune, my theme was the most important cultural level in the area, The Myth of Bárður. He was the settler of this region, half a troll and half a man. His father was half a titan, but his mother was human. Bárður came to Iceland in the 9th century and gave the peninsula its name, Snjófellsnes peninsula, both words "snær" and "snjór" mean snow in Icelandic. Despite the harsh cold conditions, it was an enriching and joyful experience painting this project. The residents were very pleased with our designs. The event was so welcome that it became an annual art festival. I hope to return another time!
