The tall facade in Kungsholmen in central Stockholm is being repainted every six months. The group ”graffitifrämjandet” curates artists that get to paint whatever they like on it. In this case, Finsta chose to paint something a bit more aggressive and illustrative than usual, dedicated to the fans and people with an acquired taste, rather than some of his more nature-inspired pieces that generally are appreciated by a very broad audience.

The subject reflects the long war on graffiti that has been taking place around the Stockholm subway and the capitals many years of zero-tolerance against urban art. Street artists have many times wrongfully been depicted as monsters in the media, and Finsta decided to make a playful comment around this.
