When “Without Borders: Artscape Edition” takes place from 17 to 20 September, for the first time the festival will focus entirely on the Swedish street art scene. It is now clear which 12 artists are participating.
The street art scene in Sweden has evolved a lot in recent years, and there are a large number of artists who have proven themselves at the highest level. The twelve artists participating in Borderless: Artscape Edition represent many different styles and expressions and create interesting mixes.
Artscape always tries to show an exciting breadth of artistic expression in our projects. At the same time, it is important that everything works as a whole. This year, No Limit will be entirely in a region with only Swedish artists – but the variation within the group is enormous. Completely different technologies, color options, and references. Everything from photorealistic photography and calligraphy to magical fairytale worlds and more graffiti-inspired works. Sculptures and weaving art will also be included in this year’s project, says Daniel Wickham, Art Scape.
When selecting artists, it is important that they maintain a certain artistic standard. Additionally, we are interested in mixing routine with new talent – showing those who are at the height of their careers while giving opportunity to the stars of tomorrow. We’re very happy with the balance on this year’s project and it’s a very colorful collection that will repaint Nurbey next month, says Tor Hedendahl, Artscape.
