About the project: Graffiti should be an inseparable part of each city. A good graffiti can lift the boring city visuals and present it in a more colourful way. It is just unfortunate that it is not appreciated in Gothenburg (and Sweden in general) the way it is appreciated in for example Berlin. One reason for that is that the municipality forces these artists to work only in very limited remote areas.  Lets be honest, Gothenburg is among the ugliest cityscapes in Europe with all its post modern cubic architectures .Except some central neighbourhoods such Majorna, most of surrounding neighborhoods and suburbs are just tall cements. Graffitis, if performed well can lift up the cityscapes! I want to show in the series that Graffitis can create amazing sceneries with my portraits.
