Info & Contact

hymyI’m a mural artist from Finland. I create beautiful murals with loads of colors and emotions. I’m ambitious about street art and I wish to make our surroundings more lively and joyful. I have painted over 100 murals so far in over 10 different countries.
I’m open to all kinds of painting works, so please feel free to contact me even with  your wildest ideas.

I’m easy going and easy to work with, even though always ambitious of getting the best results.
