Flatly coloured building after flatly coloured building get dull in even the most beautiful of cities. Sweden’s Gothenburg, undoubtedly in that category, is soon to burst with even more eye-popping beauty.

Artscape – “the world’s most immersive street art festival” - promises to involve every Gothenburg borough and be sizzling with creating, workshops and talks. Over 20 international and Swedish artists will be let loose on every district of the city, to create massive works in Scandinavia’s* largest ever street art festival. 

*If you’re not entirely sure what Scandinavia actually includes (like me), here’s a cheat sheet.

Artscape runs 25 July – 21 August.
