Svartvitt

Svartvitt

Three writers were challenged to do a regular graffiti-piece each over canvases. They were only allowed to use shades of grey, black and white. Hence the name (Svartvitt means Black and white in Swedish).

After doing the pieces, the canvases were taken down and exhibited in a gallery (Temporart).

The idea was to question whether graffiti is interesting without the colors that the average Joe speak so highly about, if it is interesting on canvas, if it is suitable to portray graffiti within the white cube and if pieces of an entity can function on their own.

It was also ment to portray a close up of the used technique and give the same average Joe who loves colors a glimpse of how a piece is created.
