Street Art

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!

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…

Copenhagen calls, again!

Festival Graffiti News Street Art

Later this month I have the pleasure of painting at 2021 edition of Meeting of Styles. In Copenhagen, Denmark. The last time I participated in the actual event in Copenhagen was back in 2016. That was also my first ever Meeting of Styles event. Well, ok, I did participate last years remote edition too, but due to travelling restrictions related to COVID19, my input took place from the safety of my own country.

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. Useimmiten se hyöty valuu aivan muualle kuin sen luovan työn tekevän ammattilaisen “laariin”. Ylläoleva videokin käy tätä samaa ilmiötä läpi, toki hieman yleisemmin ja humoristisesti luovan alan näkökulmasta. Ilmiö ei ole siis rajattu vain ylvääseen kotimaahamme. Continue Reading

Make Sense Not War

Art Graffiti Street Art Video

Arcada is a multi-professional university of applied sciences located in Helsinki. Their media students made a short documentary about street art and graffiti in Finland.

They interviewed one graffiti artist and one street artist, first one being Yours Truly, the latter Jussi TwoSeven. Check the video above! I have to admit that even if I hate watching and listening myself on tape, the documentary in general is very well executed. It probably answers a lot questions concerning both Jussi TwoSeven’s and my motives and what drives us forward.
