Portrait of an Artist | Guido van Helten

GuidoVanHeltenIn August 2015, film director Selina Miles traveled with artist Guido van Helten to Akureyri – a town on the north coast of Iceland, to produce a very unique work. This 6-minute film documents their journey, and offers insight into the unique personality of one of Australia’s most sought after street artists.


SelinaMilesThis project was a self initiated collaboration between Selina Miles and Guido van Helten, who both sought to use their respective practices to delve deeper into the wonderful and unique culture of Iceland.
