Thetraveljunkie.org – Stockholm is a city infused with artistic talent, with excellent fine art galleries, exciting contemporary spaces and artists all seeking to push the creative envelope. This creativity often spills out onto the streets, with many pieces of street art showcased across the city. These are some of poscards from Snösätra Graffiti Wall of Fame (part I) in Sweden’s capital.
Not connected by any main roads, Snösätra industriområde for a long time was a forgotten and run-down industrial area in southern Stockholm. That changed in 2014 when the landowners gave permission for the grey and debilitated walls to be painted over by graffiti artists.
Snösätra Graffiti Wall of Fame thus became one of Europe´s largest graffiti exhibitions.
Situated in the suburb of Rågsved the open-air (and all year round) exhibition is certainly off the beaten path, but well worth a visit for anyone with even just a passing interest in street art. Both Swedish and international artists bring their signature style each year, and there’s also an open wall where anyone who respects the rules is welcome to showcase their artistry. There’s an annual festival every spring with music, DJ’s and live-painting to unveil new murals as well as a handful of official vernissages and parties all through the summer.
Snösätra Wall of Fame is a 0.8-mile walk from the Rågsved metro station (green line toward Hagsätra).
