*Holem started with graffiti in the early 90s and got interested in drawing characters as a way of creating his own universes around the letters. He has organized numerous international events and continues to promote graffiti as an art form. Today he works as a graphic designer, illustrator, and graffiti artist, as well as overseeing projects. https://www.instagram.com/holem_one/
*JUNKY made his first moves in Street Art with D77, DBC, and DKA by tagging any surface accessible fixed, or stationary. Walls and trains in his local of Gennevilliers became his canvas and before long Junky extended his craft to neighboring districts and towns.
At the beginning of the 90s he funded TJS -THE JUNKY SPRAY – his crew.
Now he had the opportunity to carry his style and his fellow Street Artists such as SHOET, HEK, ZOZKEE, DEZER, and many others. The ‘TJS’ soon became recognized by his peers.
In 1991 a more serious approach was taken and he took part in an international exhibition of Street art held at The Arab Institute of Paris.
By 1998, Graffiti had become his life. The next steps he took were to refine his art by working on technique and the overall aesthetics of his pieces, always endeavoring to retain a distinctive and personal touch with his unique imagery and typography.
*FRAKA born in the 80s in north of the Parisian suburbs;
influenced by the ZZR, TCP, DKA, TJS AND AOS crews, he begins to tag on the walls of this city. Wanting to stand out, he developed his style by taking an interest in the US movement of the 80s.
His graffiti, recognizable at first glance; is defined by bright color, which immerses us in a galactic universe, and by a touch of funky, thanks to its self-caricatured B.Boy.
Wanting to grade the graffiti spirit, he affixes his style on all supports (paper, canvas, model, metal plate, street furniture, etc.) but it is on Jacket that he excels.
In 3 words: Colors, B.Boy & Funk.
*Dams is a French graffiti artist born in 1985.
From a young age in the Parisian suburbs (92), he was seduced by its urban environment, in particular the graffiti on the walls.
Passionate about drawing and painting, he began to paint his first wall at the time of high school. Self-taught, he wanders around and perfects his art in vacant lots, urban arts festivals in France and Europe, collective exhibitions…
Very attracted by the large colorful murals, in 2006 Dams joined the collective of artists HEC (Haut En Couleur), with whom he fine-tuned
His dazzling calligraphic style is highlighted through colors that are always meticulously chosen.
He quickly knew how to stand out by the originality of his precise 3D letters that he offers on other supports (Canvas, clothes, etc.).

ABOUT the space
Stadsgården commonly refers to the wharf on the shore of the Baltic Sea in Stockholm, Sweden, located between Slussen in the west and Masthamnen in the east. The word gård in the name comes from skeppsgård, which was a word used in archaic Swedish for an area used for port and dock operations. Along “Stadsgårdhamnen”, the Stockholm city wharves can be found, with terminals for cruise ferries and ferries to Finland, including the Viking Line terminal. Terminalen is becoming a space for art exhibitions, Supermarket Art Fair was help there in 2021, and now more artistic events are happening at that location.
