Last night was the opening night of the exhibiton Stockholm by paint. Have a look at from the party here. Let's give the artist his thoghts about the project:
" My thought with this exhibition was to serenade and portrait a few artists/people in Stockholm. Some of them are known to the masses, others take less space but need to be aknowledged. They have one thing in common they all move outside of the frame created by media. They take less space but in the long run the have bigger influence on the social climate. I’m happy you took your time to read and showed interrest :) All six originals are for sale and if sold 30 % goes to Stockholm Stadsmission. If interrested contact the people in the store."

Released her debut Adiam Dymott the same year.One characteristic for Adiam is her nonfear for crossing genres and styles.

A big influence and rolemodel for his a students and as an artist. Superemcee - also really hard to describe with words. An alien ability to improvise and bend rhythms.

Released his debut album Nääk who? 2009, One characteristic for Nääk is his different way of flowing and his choice of beats with fat baselines. Born and raised in Rinkeby but have spent his adult years in the southern parts of Stockholm. A dope mc and a character beyond - always kool
Eventprofile beyond - Born and raised in Ibbenbüren Germany but have lived in Stockholm for a long time.

Has an extreme feel for grooves and building soundscapes.
