Karlstad, Sweden. June 2013.
Walking down Karlstad’s main shopping street near closing time, I spotted this electrical box painted with a pink bow. It’s not political or angry or philosophical or anything (I suppose it could be, if you want to get all deep and analytical), but to me, street art doesn’t always need to be complicated or politically correct. Sometimes it can just be something incredibly nice and not have to get more dense or complex than that. It can be something you spot randomly that makes you smile, or is awesome in its very idea or wit or seeming self-awareness. I know my city could use a little bit of this brand of cheer. God knows we have enough concrete and crap as it is. Some good vibes couldn’t hurt.
