Kerafest, Espoo

Art Festival Graffiti Mural Street Art

Kerafest event takes place on July 30th at Kera area, Espoo. That’s less than two weeks to go! The place is a former logistics center and I can’t emphasize enough how huge the area really is! These days the place holds many events and activities and many of the large walls in the area have been painted with various street art during the last few years.

I am invited to paint at the Kerafest event with fellow graffiti writers Charles Liquor and Punish. Gotta say that I’m looking forward to it, the styles those dudes drop are phenomenal!

More info about the place.

Seinäjoki Graffitilandia

Art Exhibition Festival Graffiti Mural News Street Art

As if two rounds of Wasa Graffitilandia last year weren’t enough, the organizers behind the event managed to expand the event to nearby (about 75km) city of Seinäjoki! Last week I visited the place with my crew mate Soved and we managed to leave our humble marks on the spot. So, once the event opens to public, you’ll be able to see them and bunch of other jaw dropping artwork by various artists, both domestic and abroad. And trust me, the participating artists this year are more than you could expect!

And yes, the 3rd round of Wasa Graffitilandia does take place at the same time. And just maybe there’s something small from us over there too…

Wasa Graffitilandia, round two

Art Exhibition Festival Graffiti Mural Street Art

Wasa Graffitilandia is an outdoor art exhibition in an abandoned amusement park in Vaasa, Finland. Over 100 artists took part in filling the place with all sorts of art during the summer 2021 and the venue was open for public for the late summer ’til it closed its doors. But since the event was a success and the place itself is huge, the organisers announced that round two for the event would take place later this year. I was lucky enough to be invited for this event as well. If all goes as planned, it’s less than a week when I’ll be there.

During the first round I did a bunch of small pieces in the area, for the second round… well, I am not sure yet, I’m sure I’ll come up with something. Maybe even something different than during the previous round…

Demolition Art Takeover

Art Exhibition Featured Graffiti News

Demolition Art project expands its concept to a new spot, this time on a premises that are not going to be demolished but quite the opposite: the place has been renovated and the owner wants to offer something new to their clients. So they contacted Jouni Väänänen, the person behind the Home of Art and many other projects and started negotiating about how Demolition Art concept would fit in their business plan. So, the place is nothing less than Hotel Helka, right in the heart of Helsinki City, and the outcome will be open (with restrictions) to public from January 14th 2021.

The last exhibition for 2020

Art Exhibition Featured News

Due to COVID19 and all the restrictions caused by it, I’ve spent countless hours indoors in 2020. And I’ve used a lot of that time for creating art. Which in general has been a good thing, because in 2019 I reserved an exhibition time for myself for early 2020 and the gallery space is large. Meaning that I’d be needing quite a few canvases to avoid presenting empty walls.
