Johan Karlgren, also known as Pappas Pärlor, is a Swedish artist who creates interactive street art that makes his surroundings a lot more fun. Johan’s works are inspired by his passion – old video games, and that’s why all his characters that invade the streets are pixelated.
Pappas Pärlor’s pixel art can be usually found on our everyday objects, such as traffic signs, pipes, sculptures, fences and hundreds more. They are wisely incorporated into the functions of those objects which gives them new meanings while mixed with art. Scroll down on his IG page to see them for yourself!
From 5 – 12 september, visitors of the Feijenoord district can hunt for these beautiful additions to the streets!
