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 located at the lobby of Original Sokos Hotel Tripla, is also helping Finnish street artists to show off their skills.
The wall, curated by Helsinki Urban Art, exhibits 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 displayed art 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 Helsinki Urban Art association for more information.
Helsinki Urban Art also arranges guided public and private street art tours departing from Original Sokos Hotel Tripla.
