SWEDEN: Streetart Stockholm – Kulturkvarter Snösätra – Graffiti Wall Of Fame – […meanwhile demolished…]

The Kulturkvarter Snösätra with its Graffiti Wall of Fame was one of the greates open art galleries in Europe, unfortunately it has been torn down in September 2020, but here in our archive are a lot of photos of the great works on this former awesome colorful lost place. The streetart hot spot was located in the remote south of Stockholm in a disused industrial park near Rågsved. This building complex lay fallow for years and gradually fell apart. It was a small deserted ghost town that was avoided. But that should change completely. In 2014, a group was able to convince the landowners that certain walls can be painted. This started a transformation of this area into one of the largest graffiti exhibitions in Europe.
