Since the 1980s Pasila has been one of the most important places for the graffiti and street art scene in Helsinki. Now, Tripla Urban Art Wall, which is inside Original Sokos Hotel Tripla, is also showing the imprint of Finnish street artists.
The wall, curated by Helsinki Urban Art, presents art by several local artists, who have their roots in street art or graffiti. Many of the artists have also made art on the streets of East Pasila, as well as in Pasila Urban Art Center at Kasöörinkatu 3.
The three-monthly exhibition presents a variety of artists, trends and styles. The exhibitions feature both original works and prints, and all works are on sale. If you are interested in purchasing art, please contact the hotel lobby or directly us for more information.
Pasila Street Art District also has guided public and private tours departing from Original Sokos Hotel Tripla. Public tours will begin in June.
More information of upcoming exhibitions coming later.
