Arts and crafts meet street art in these nostalgic pop-up pieces

If you’re anywhere near Sweden at the moment, keep your eyes peeled, an artist is leaving trails of old-school pop culture around the streets.

Swedish artist Johan Karlgren (or PappasPärlors as Instagram instructs) is giving us major ’80s and ’90s feels with the pixilated icons that he’s leaving all over his local streets. Forget Netflix, we’re reliving our youth right now.

Karlgren is using that old favourite arts and crafts tool Perlerbeads to model characters like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the Simpsons, Mario, and our favourite Pokemon.

Johan has even created a calendar for 2018 based on his artworks. Get yours here!
