Theresa Himmer

I wanted to share with you the art of Theresa Himmer. She creates these incredible street art on the side of buildings in Reykjavik, using sequins. Himmer created these striking pieces whilst living in Iceland from 2005 - 2009, and the graffiti symbolises the damage done to the environment.

The installations take place on the side of run-down building to create a strong juxtaposition between the urban areas and her environmental work. For instance the work above represents a volcano and its molten lava, and looks at how mankind is destroying the environment in its quest to find for natural resources. What do you think?
