Kista art

We want to see more art on the streets and walls of Kista. Creative change is an important part in an attractive urban environment. It gives life, spirit and contributes to a better place. With Kista Art we want to highlight all the creativity and works of art connected to Kista and how they contribute to positive urban development.

Blobb.tv and Magid Abdul-Kareem:

Winners of Kista Open Art 2022

blobb.tv

An artist who works in the borderland between human and pixel, using painting, animation, and code. For Kista Open Art, Blobb.tv has created an exciting piece of artwork that is based on AR (Augmented Reality) which connects to Kista as one of the world's leading clusters of tech and the competition theme Creative change.

This interactive artwork has emerged through conversations with people living, studying and working in Kista. Memories of jazz in Grönlandsparken meet a shopping spree at Kista Grossen. The view of the sunset from Kista subway station intersects the path to Järvaskolan etc. If you point your mobile camera at the artwork, the stories come to life through AR.

"Just like Kista. Blobb.tv's work is constantly changing, which the viewer will be able to experience with their smartphone".

"Steget vidare" by Magid Abdul-Karem

Kista-based Magid Abdul-Karem is not only an artist, but also a trained nurse and engineer. For Kista Open Art Magid will give a powerful visual expression of Kista's change through his artwork "The future step", which shows Kista's thousand-year-old runestone in the hands of an astronaut. The artwork will be realised both physically and as an NFT (Non-Fungible Token) that will generate an income that enables even more public art in Kista.

“Magid Abdul-Karem is not only an artist, but also a trained nurse and engineer who lives and works in Kista.”

About Kista open art 2022

The response to the first art competition in Kista was huge. Kista Open Art, which is part of the larger initiative Kista Art, was held in June 2022 and resulted in over 100 creative entries on the theme Creative change. And this is just the beginning. Keep an eye out for future announcements of hopefully new places that need a creative makeover.

Macrocosmos:

The Space-Themed Artwork Adding Depth to Kista

Marc Alright

Commissioned by Kollektivet Livet and Revelop, the artist with the cool name, Marc Alright, went to Kista to add space and depth through his artwork "Macrokosmos." The mural, depicting outer space, is now located at Torshamnsgatan 35 in Kista. Through his piece, Marc aims to provoke thought—or perhaps encourage people to not think at all?

I often ask people where in the space cluster they would like to be. They usually then point somewhere to say something like, 'Right there looks nice and peaceful.'"

See where in the galaxy cluster you would like to be. The artwork "Macrokosmos" is completed and can be viewed at Torshamnsgatan 35 in Kista.

"My hope is that people will stop and react because something new has happened."

Wallstreet powered by the Kloud

Have you noticed the artwork on the building at Kistagången 10? It is a unique mix of graffiti, painting, photography, and lighting forming a new visual experience. It was created during Wallstreet Stockholm 2022, a public art festival. Driven by curiosity and desire to experiment this is the first time the artist Antonin Katre has mixed techniques in this way. The depth, space, angles, and perspective are typical of his art.
