The story behind the artwork
A London map designed in 2017, based on Kristjana's work for The Shard in 2015. The Knowledge piece can be found on the 32nd floor of the iconic building. The Shard, which gives a distinct look to London's skyline is - to this day - the tallest building in Europe. This piece features a huge map of London, printed onto glass and back lit with LED lights so that the river seems like it is flowing and the colours of the piece really pop. It also shows the very industrial side of London with the buildings made out of tools and industrial iron particles, for which there are many historical references, along with some cockney slang and fun street names.
Growing up in Iceland, where there are very few tall buildings, the impact the London skyline had on Kristjana was massive. She is truly inspired by this great city, and working on London themed artwork is a passion of hers.
