Oil-painting up a tree

Daniel Volle
So there I am, at the Kronobergs park at Kungsholmen in Stockholm when I spot an old oil painting up a tree. It did look weird, but also a bit familiar, and I remember seeing something similar at another park earlier in the year so I decided to investigate. Turned out to be a street art project by Daniel Volle. He bought the oil paintings years ago, then came up with the idea to add a line or two from popular Swedish artists, Laleh in this case. Daniel had a very famous dad. The music producer Denniz Pop who wrote songs for Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys and many more so I'm guessing he grew up surrounded by music and musicians. Oh, and the line on the painting of the Sámi man says I'm just going to be myself.
