We were cruising around Ring Road when I swear I saw a Banksy. So I did the most logical thing, I slammed on the brakes and turned around. Here is what we saw.
You tell me. Banksy or really good Fakesy?
It’s just subversive enough where I think it is real (The Metropolis logo from the Fritz Lang film, the hooded figure, etc.). The last picture is the location on our GPS. If you are ever in Iceland, check it out.
Hard to tell anymore with all the imitators. It is still great. Nice find.

Google says that grafitti art is big in Iceland but no mention of Banky stuff there except speculation over a headless polar bear pushing a shopping cart. Still cool!
Love it! Looks authentic to me, great art one way or the other.

Wow, that is so cool!! Thanks for sharing. I knew I was going to get an education from your trip. I just read up on him, very interesting – love it!!.
Banksy is incredible. You should check out the documentary about him and street art, “Exit Through The Gift Shop” http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00470MG06/ref=as_li_ss_il?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00470MG06&linkCode=as2&tag=mikeshub-20 Really cool stuff.
I saw it last week and it looked like Banksy to me
I did the exact same thing, it looks legit
