In addition to all the street art around Itä-Pasila district, we now bring art also indoors in Pasila Urban Art Center, a host for various exhibitions, workshops and events.

In our center we have for example changing exhibitions, books about street art, workshops, movie nights (if you have an idea about an event or activity, don’t hesitate to tell us!). Pasila Urban Art Center (in Finnish Pasilan kaupunkitaidekeskus) also has a workshop room for graffiti and street art workshops. Art also spreads to the areas around Pasila, which has turned into a real street art district.

Pasila Urban Art hosts also different kind of exhibitions dedicated to urban art. The exhibitions change approximately every 6 weeks. The exhibitions are open during the opening hours of Pasila Urban Art Center (Thu & Fri 12–18, Sat 13–16).

Pasila City Art Center is located at Kasöörinkatu 3 lh 4. Access is from the courtyard of the house.

Pasila Urban Art Center is supported by Finnish Cultural Foundation and Kuluttajaosuustoiminnan säätiö.


Timo Tyynismaa

Timo Tyynismaa is a 43-year-old architect from Oulu whose hobbies have long been Fine Art and street art that came to his life around five years ago. Tyynismaa says that there’s no common thread in his works and he doesn’t want to explain his works to others. He makes artworks using only intuition and without planning. He also doesn’t want to use forced meanings nor statements so the depth of his works varies a lot. The techniques of the Tyynismaa vary from painting to reliefs, and in Pasila’s exhibition also includes a small tapestry.

The exhibition is open from November 19 to December 19 on Thursday and Friday 12pm – 6pm and on Saturday 1 to 4 pm.
