SWEDEN: Art Break broken

Per-Ivar LindekrantzAs we’ve been bussing around town I’ve noticed that many of the bus stands, decorated by the globally ubiquitous JC Decaux have featured a number of doggy pictures tagged as ART BREAK and given a QR code to pursue more details via the web. AFAICT there’s a project to display art rather than commercial advertising for one month each in various Swedish cities. The current exhibition features work by  Per-Ivar Lindekrantz, and has the concept of showing mythical characters and creatures in contemporary environments.

Frustratingly the installation site links to a non-existent artist site, and there is no gallery of all the pictures on display. I looked for the artist on other sites but I only found some galleries with tiny thumbnails that launch an image fractionally larger than the thumbnail… a complete waste of time.

The images below were found by hunting around on the JC Decaux site. I hope you can enjoy the artist’s work more easily here than that site allows.
