‘Highway’

The mural “Highway” stretches across a wall in Rågsved, in southern Stockholm. It was painted in August 1989 by the graffiti crew Still Heavens Only Force and is heralded as one of the world’s oldest preserved graffiti murals. 

Almost 30 years after its debut, in August 2019, local residents were shocked to see that someone was covering the mural with dark blue paint. Someone had mistaken the iconic and loved mural for vandalism and decided to paint the wall. Concerned locals told the painter to stop and started fetching water to wash away the new blue paint, attempting to save as much of the mural as they could.
