As in other European countries, New York-influenced graffiti writing started all over Scandinavia with the television broadcast of the film “Style Wars” (1984) by Henry Chalfant. Hundreds of kids from Stockholm and all of Sweden are enthusiastic about the new movement and are beginning to beautify the street walls. Two of them are Ziggy and Disey, which made Stockholm one of the most active graffiti cities.
