Vielä sananen työn arvostamisesta

Art Graffiti News Street Art Work

Julkaisimme reilu viikko sitten kannanoton, jonka pointti lyhykäisyydessään oli “ammattitaiteilijan on saatava palkkaa tekemästään työstä – myös graffititaiteilijan”. Mielestäni tämä on täysin selkeä ja ennen kaikkea reilu vaatimus. Olisiko ihan Suomen työlainsäädännönkin mukainen? Lisäksi pyysimme taiteilijoita harkitsemaan tarkkaan, miten suhtautua ilmaistyötarjouksiin. Kannattaa ylipäätänsä pohtia sitä, kuka ilmaistyöstä hyötyy – ja miten.

And feel like I need to raise my voice further on this matter and hope it gets heard somehow, somewhere. Continue Reading

Kosmos Festival 2015

Festival Graffiti Work

I’m into heavy metal. Seriously. Have been since I was nine years old. So seeing me at techno or electric music festival in general ain’t very likely. Well, if you participated in this year’s Kosmos Festival you probably witnessed the opposite.

My colleague and crew mate Psyke lives and breathes the damn music in question. And he knows… well, nearly everybody. At least if they’re related to either graffiti or finnish techno scene. So naturally he was somehow related to the event and was asked to paint at the festival. Continue Reading

Raw Deal visits Copenhangen

Graffiti Video Work

I visited Denmark few days ago with my wife and Raw Deal crewmates Psyke and Round. The trip was awesome! We painted some, toured some and even met some old and new friends during our stay. I’ll update flicks to portfolio as soon as I recover from the trip and get cameras memory card’s emptied on my computer.

Oh, my wife filmed quite a lot footage from the trip, hopefully we’ll got something edited and published soon.
