Entrance to art


Stockholm has one of Europe´s hardest regulations against graffiti and street art, the City has decided on a zero tolerance policy, and graffiti gets washed away immediately when discovered. But of course, there are places where you can find great art if you know where to look – the usual “non-places” of a city, under bridges, in tunnels and concrete walls where not many people pass by.

This shady place, Atlasmuren (the Atlas wall), is one of those treasure troves. Enter in that darkest corner over there, and you will find all kinds of goodies. This Saturday I saw some beautiful photo works on tiles, some old stencil art, and great looking big wheat pasted posters. Bring a friend if you come here, though, because noone will hear you screaming if something happens in there…
