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 at a time 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 during the spring.
Salaprints exhibition presents works by Finnish street artists made using serigraphy techniques.
The artists in the exhibition are anonymous except for one, and each has its own history in street art – some have been in business for more than ten years and some less. All of the artists curated for the exhibition are active and bring their own contribution to today’s street art with stickers, paintings and paste-ups.
Exhibition opening on Wednesday, March 4, at 6pm. The exhibition is open Thu-Fri 12pm – 6pm and Sat 1 to 4 pm.
With the exhibition also open a permanent print section at Pasila Urban Art Center, which sells prints by Finnish and international street artists.
