Artscape 2014 Recap

ARTSCAPE 2014 international street art festival was held earlier this year, in May, in Malmö, Sweden, with renowned artists such as Phlegm, CYRCLE., Faith47, Isaac Cordal and more.

The murals and installations offer an extraordinary visual experience, from the highly detailed characters of Phlegm to the powerful piece of CYRCLE., the miniature sculptures of Isaac Cordal, the conscious art of Faith47 to the colourful knitting gun of Magda Sayeg or the origami street art of Mademoiselle Maurice.

Here are some highlights, including the story behind the accidental removal of Stinkfish’s wall.

During the festival the Stinkfish wall got buffed by mistake. With half of the wall painted over, a local artist painted the sign “Loading…” above what was left of the mural. Fortunately, the artist was invited back in Malmö and he is now working on new pieces, which hopefully will be safe this time.
