In the beginning of September my husband told me there is new mural in Karakallio which is only a few kilometers from us. On the way to the grocery store we went to look for the mural which is situated only a few hundred meters from the grocery.The mural is painted by Jussi TwoSeven 2019. On the artist’s page I found the name of the painting. It is called Pandion Haliaetus Suteailah Nordnap.This next one by him I saw when we visited the Helsinki Baltic Herring Market on the 12th of October. It is called Strix Nebulosa. I like both of them. There still are a couple more I hope to see live and have the opportunity to take photos of.
In the end of February I showed my son the photos I took at Myyrmäki railway station. He said, you should go to the Malminkartano station. There are a lot of street art/murals. Both Myyrmäki and Malminkartano stations are not far from us. Only about 6-7 km. We were there yesterday. My son was right. There are many paintings. I didn’t photograph all of them. Here are some I took. Once again, I took way too many photos.
On Wednesday 27th we both went visiting an optician situated at the Myyrmäki mall. I had my eyes checked first. So while my husband’s eyes were checked I went for a walk. I decided to go to the railway station which is right outside the mall. It is a long time since I was there last. I think I have not seen the paintings before. Or, I may have, as my husband suggested, forgot ! Either way, I’m glad I walked there and got to see them now and shoot some nice photos. The paintings are huge, colorful and impressive.
I googled and found out many were painted in 2015 when the railway station was renovated as part of the Ring Rail Line opened in the summer 2015 connecting Helsinki Railway to Helsinki Airport.
Some of my Wednesday photos were no good so I went back on Thursday to take some more photos.
This one is a short walk from the station right in front of an underpass.
About three weeks ago, when we visited friends in Hämeenlinna, we together, went to look at the mural the Australian artist Guido van Helten just had started to paint. It already then looked fantastic. Our friends had told us he is now almost finished with painting. Yesterday on the way back from the automobil and road museum Mobilia in Kangasala via Hämeenlinna we again went there. The fog really was thick all day long. I thought it would be impossible to shoot any photos of the murals. Luckily right before in Hämeenlinna the fog disappeared. It still was gray but good enough visibility to shoot the murals. WOW ! He had finished two paintings and was working on a third one. They all are amazing, beautiful, breathtaking,huge, impressive . . .
