André Saraiva Goes Back to Sweden-------
Last weekend, graffiti artist and international nightlife czar André Saraiva headed to back to his native Sweden for a special art exhibition—which included his own work, and Dream Concerts, a collaborative project he did with Maison Kitsuné. Naturally, the weekend wrapped with a Le Baron pop-up party, which happened to come just in time to kick off Stockholm fashion week. Saraiva (and his signature tag, Mr. A) sent us a few photos from the trip, which debut exclusively below.
I was born in Sweden, lived there as a child, and Absolut gave me the chance to come back and exhibit my work as an artist in my home country for this very special weekend. I displayed some of my latest art at Gallery Steinsland Berliner, and hosted a dinner at Atelier Absolut after a great opening. I also brought along with me the spirit of my nightclub, Le Baron, so that the Stockholm crowd could party my way during two very special nights at the V Club. Here are some snapshots of my “Back to Sweden” weekend.
