In just a few years, Swedish street art has boomed. Anonymous artists have been using the city as a playground, and its streets as their parliament. Street art raises questions, but once it reaches the audience, there are no answers.

How does the urge to feel responsible for your immediate environs arise? Why are some expressions within street art more accepted than others? Why do so few women choose to work in public space? How is this art affected by advertising? Playground Sweden gives the answer through the accounts of 30 of Sweden’s most interesting street artists.

Playground Sweden is a travel report through text and image, abook on contemporary Swedish art that refuses to follow conventional rules. Richly illustrated with unique pictorial material that will show you not only the finished product, but also the creative process of street art.
