Industrial, run-down and off-the-beaten-path are just some words that one would use to describe the Snösätra Graffiti Exhibit before it became what it is today. Located south of Stockholm in the suburb of Rågsved, it was previously an old and decrepit piece of land in an industrial neighborhood. In 2014, the owners of the property allowed graffiti artists to come and paint over the old walls that were present on the property and by doing so Snösätra became one of the largest graffiti exhibitions in all of Europe.
Every year, artists from Sweden and other parts of the world are able to come to Snösätra and share their artwork with the world. By having the opportunity of change at Snösätra, every year offers a different experience when visiting the exhibition. In the past, an event called Spring Beat was hosted at Snösätra, which help kick off the new year of murals on-site. Spring Beat had live music, DJs and live painting so individuals could see some of the artwork while it was being created. Although it has been a recurring event in the past, there has been no new news on whether or not it will continue.
So, will you make the trip down to Snösätra and visit one of the largest graffiti exhibitions in Europe?
