4 x4 meter mural.
Only a handful of people know who the real Herr Nilsson is. That’s probably why the art outlaw has thus far escaped the authorities.
Despite being a progressive country overall, Sweden is regressive in terms of graffiti policy, to the point that the government even forbids stores from allowing artists to put murals on their walls. The mysterious Swedish artist, who adopted the name of Pippi Longstocking’s pet monkey, defied the zero-tolerance policy by plastering the streets with images of violent Disney princesses. The Mouse must have gone mental seeing Snow White and Cinderella turned into serial killers, and the police certainly took offense at the artist’s blatant disregard for the law.
Herr Nilsson could give a fuck. This is the type of artist who put up a mural of polar bears and penguins saying, “Save the planet, kill your kids.” He’s painted Cinderella telling the animals to “Stay single, bitches” and that she’s going to “fuck my way to the top.” He’s got Winnie the Pooh trying to decide if he wants weed, speed, smack or crack. Herr Nilsson is happy to offend people with his art because, as he says, “Life is offensive.”
