Fuck You Graffiti Art!

Magnus Gustafsson aka Nug is a Swedish graffiti artist and has been called one of the worst graffiti vandals in Sweden. His latest project (the concept is fuck you, yes you) for the Fame Festival 2011 in Italy, which recently became famous being mentioned on vandalog.com, doobybrain.com, theworldsbestever.com, crackajack.de, juxtapoz.com, electru.de and rebelart.net (just to name a few), explains why…

Together with some dressed in black friends (a few trained vandals, the others just good guys and girls), Nug hit different spots in the old city of Grottaglie and totally fucked up the walls with black spray-paint!

As Wikipedia knowns, Nug studied art at the art college Konstfack where he earned a Master of Arts degree in 2008. His degree project, called Territorial Pissing, was a film showing a masked man spraying a subway car and the stockholm station entrance. Seems I somehow missed this back then.

Anyway, I really like the action in Italy – hope he can make it to Berlin in near future! Watch the other part on Vimeo!
