I had the pleasure to participate at “Our Street” exhibition at Vantaa Art Museum at late fall of 2014. Since my work was painted directly on the wall, it was naturally painted over after the exhibition.
Later next year museum announced a major change in their concept: they’d be the first finnish museum to concentrate on street art, graffiti included. As part of this they ordered a painting from me, since all the other participants at the “Our Street” exhibition had left some of their work for the museum. Now my painting is part of their collection as well. That’s a huge thing for me. Hell, for any graffiti artist these days. Especially in Finland. Yeah!
In addition to that, museum chose to use the painting as a part of the “You & Me” exhibition which starts at late February of 2016. They also used the picture of the painting in their first catalogue/publication. I am more than honoured of the coverage, thank you!
