Klisterpeter is one of the “founders” of Swedish street art. Together with Akay & Adams he has formed the street art scene not only in Sweden and is a major part of the continued development of its expression.
His artistic career began with graffiti in the end of the 1980s in Arboga. Ten years later, moving to Stockholm, he painted classical graffiti under the name Free. Soon he befriended Akay and together they began joint street art campaigns and the close cooperation that has lasted for over 15 years. Their first joint work was the much acclaimed cottage Traffic Island at Norrtull in Stockholm. On his own Klisterpeter is well known for his animal stencils, deer stickers, and birdhouses.
In the book Urban Recreation Akay and Klisterpeter shows thirteen projects from the past four years. Best known is probably the Traffic Island, the little red cottage that stood on a cliff between two busy roads.
Their work truly goes beyond spray cans and wheatpastes to architectural structures and installations. Using material they find on the streets, Akay and Klisterpeter take empty places and turn then into magical little oases.
