I am a Siuntio based street artist and communal educator. I love hiking, broccoli and goats, but most of all painting. My aim is to put colour on all the grey walls I encounter, create possibilities for residents to have an influence on their surroundings and to make unexpected places inspirational.

In addition to making customized murals and smaller street art pieces, I organize communal street art workshops for all age groups and do woodcut prints and illustrations. I am also doing my MA in Aalto University of Art and Design from Visual Culture, Curating and Contemporary Art and aim to graduate in 2021.

I am a member of SAV Taidekollektiivi (former Street Art Vantaa) and G-Rex Street Art Collectives and also co-founder of Helsinki Urban Art ry. You will find more information of us through these links:
