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.

 

CURRENTLY ON DISPLAY

Laura Pehkonen 9.4 – 9.7.2021

Laura Pehkonen is a Finnish visual artist living in Helsinki. She graduated as a ceramic artist from Aalto University in 2014. Pehkonen is currently working with ceramics, wood and mixed media paintings. Her works are unique abstract sculptures and paintings, that leave the viewer freedom to imagine and interpret.
 
“In my works, I am looking for contrasts, proportions, balance and the sense of presence. Regardless of materials or techniques, I am curious to do try-outs. Rather than repeating a single format, I provoke myself with several materials and techniques and study their dialogue in the works.” Pehkonen’s works are included in Helsinki Art Museum HAM and The Finnish State Art Deposit Collections (Finnish National Gallery) and private collections. In recent years, her works have been on display in Finland, Iceland, Denmark and Peru.
