From myth to urban reality

We bring the color to a celebration of storytelling in Sweden

What better way to proudly display your passion for paint than getting involved with one of the world’s largest ever urban art projects?

Artscape Saga was recently staged in 12 municipalities throughout the Gothenburg area in Sweden. It involved artists from all over the world creating large-scale outdoor murals, with each piece interpreting a classic folk tale.

The stunning designs were created with support from our Nordsjö brand, with the 26 artists being provided with all the colors and material they needed to transform various buildings of all shapes and sizes.

Using contemporary street art to bring myths and folklore to life not only helped to brighten up scores of local neighborhoods, it also met with a hugely enthusiastic response.

For the record, the municipalities that took part were Ale, Alingsås, Härryda, Kungsbacka, Kungälv, Lerum, Lilla Edet, Mölndal, Partille, Stenungsund, Tjörn and Öckerö.
