I was asked to paint at a hip hop/graffiti jam in my hometown Västerås.
It was located within the walls of a medieval castle where a museum is located.
Decided to do somethin different than ordinary letter graffiti and this is what came out of it.

Turned out pretty ok.
It´s HARD to work on a small 1,5x2m surface like this with spraypaint. First time i ever painted with spray on canvas to.
Now the painting belongs to the museum and will be kept forever and ever as a part of a graffiti documentation campaign.

Tikidreams I love the colors you chose to have there. In fact I love everything about this painting.Hard to believe you use spraypaint to create this image. Great piece.

Hewey>> I used a stencil for the text. The black frame was taped.
All the other stuff is "cut". You cut of a colored field with another color.

You cut it of with a line with the spraycan that is.
Hard to explain the teqniche but when i used a bit of cardboard to straighten out ONE line i got boo-ed by the crowd.
There´s prestige in good can control without cheating.

I was bored and made a new moai. Two shades of brown and two different cans of black.

It´s probably gone already.

A painting I did earlier this spring. Sorry about the large image size and the ass crack.

Sketching up and filling in areas.

Trying to even lines in the wind, a frustrating job. My friend playing with the camera functions.

Turned out something like this.
