The face is crucial for human identity. We use our face to express our feelings, communicate and identify each other. The first impression of a person we meet is often based of their looks. By blurring a persons face he/she will be unreachable and non-identifiable. Focus will move from the person to his or hers actions. BLURRED FACES is a video-zine by SPRAY DAILY™ featuring anonymous faceless artists writing their pseudonyms on trains and subways around the world.

In 1437 AD the king of Sweden awarded the city of Malmö with the mighty griffin as the heraldic symbol of the municipality. Six hundred years have passed and now it is time for a remix!
Using a variation of the classic Exquisite Corpse technique popularized by the surrealist movement, ARTSCAPE invited three artists to each create a component of the brand new Malmö griffin.
The original griffin of ancient mythology is part eagle and part lion, the kings of birds and beasts. ARTSCAPE decided to add a humble human to symbolise the people of Malmö. After creating three striking characters, each in a totally different style, the different segments of the wall were switched around to form three new incarnations of the city’s symbol.

We visited one of Swedens nicest festivals again this Summer, the reggae festival Öland Roots! Always a super nice vibe with the music, the nice location, friendly visitors and off course colorful graffiti. This year we brought our tent and arranged a writers corner in the chill out area of the camping. Thank you Öland Roots, Peter and Mata and of course all of you who came by and hung out with us!
This year the walls of the Festival was painted by Dart, Roxes, Hein, Geist, Bikd, Yoga, UNIR1, GI Crew, Bwoie and Auto.
