"They are popping up on roundabouts all over Sweden, but only a select few know who is making the wooden dogs that constitute the country's latest guerilla art movement," writes James Savage reporting on the Roudabout Dogs that now adorn around 60 Swedish traffic roundabouts. "Most of the people responsible for putting the dogs on roundabouts have remained anonymous. A group calling itself Akademi Vreta Kloster (AVK) claimed the credit for some of the first roundabout dogs. They released a statement to local newspaper Corren in which they said that they were protesting against vandalism in society. But according to Expressen, other guerilla artists have different motives for making their dog sculptures. Peter Nyberg of Linköping told tabloid Expressen that his dogs were intended to 'mock the state-employed artists, who get so much money to make sculptures that we can do just as well ourselves.'"
