The old railway station of Pasila in Helsinki has been the center of a lot of changes over the past year. In May 2017, just before the station will be demolished, it was that one more time when a Spanish street artist Sabek painted a large mural on the southside roof of the station.

The painting of the piece started at the end of May and continued for about a week. The finished work can be viewed for a few weeks in June before the station will be demolished. The artist, Sabek is known for his bold use of color and the dark characters and animals that he often features in his pieces. He has included these elements to this mural as well, adapting them to the local colour scheme.

Sabek is an internationally known street artist who started his career by painting on the walls of the working class neighbourhood of Valleca in Madrid, and soon developed his own distinctive style. Since then, Sabek has painted around the world, in countries such as the United States, New Zealand as well as several countries in Europe and Asia.
