New mural in Seyðisfjörður by Anna Vaivare

Norðurgata 7, Seyðisfjörður

Artist in residence Anna Vaivare has been working tirelessly on finishing her latest mural, and now it is done! Come and see this beautifully cheerful addition to the house in Norðurgata 7, also called “Magasín”, as it used to be a shoe shop – a historical detail that you can find hidden in the wall painting.

The inauguration and good-bye party for Anna takes place on Saturday, June 5th, from 20:00 in the garden of Norðurgata 7. Everyone is welcome!

Published works by Anna will be available for sale in the Skaftfell store from June 17 onwards.
