Wasa Graffitilandia pt.2, 2021

Wasa Graffitilandia is an outdoor art exhibition in an abandoned amusement park in Vaasa, Finland. 2nd round, Winter Edition, took place from the fall of 2021 'til the early January of 2022. I had the honour of being one of the many artists who got to decorate the place with their art.

This time I painted a few pieces less than I did during the summer and visited the spot by myself… And yeah, that’s pretty much it, I let the pictures do the talking. But I have to mention that one of the pieces I painted was based on the outlines of Raw Deal crew mate Osek and it’s linked to the “Who Made Who” theme I begun working with during the 2020 and which started to materialize during 2021. I’ll have an exhibition from this very theme later on 2022 and I intend to release a publication related to it as well. But more about these later.

Not that much photos from the new paintings by other people this time, since I was among the first artists for the 2nd run. So I hope you get the chance of visiting the place and experiencing the place and its atmosphere for yourself. Well worth the visit!
