Street Graffiti Art in Stockholm
Photographer Annaliese Comelab takes us behind the scenes of a celebration of street graffiti art in Stockholm.
Snösätragrand Hall of Fame in Rågsved is an old industrial area located south of Stockholm. At least 160 Swedish and European graffiti artists showcased their works on walls making the area an outdoor exhibition space at the Springbeat Graffiti Art Festival.
This collection of moments taken from the event aim to get a little bit more closer to the talented artists. ‘Street Art’ is a contentious word and can be easily brushed aside as thoughtless vandalism. However, events like these do show how artists put thought and effort into details of an image before they even go on a wall.
It is a family-friendly event where one can take part in the graffiti workshops, watch and appreciate the talents through live paintings, trying out virtual reality paintings, open mic sessions and even children making their own street art on walls allocated for children.
The event was held in collaboration with Stockholm Stad, Stockholms Stadsmuseum, Studiefrämjandet, Graffitifrämjandet, Loop, Street Corner, Boka en truck and Woodhill Studios.
