Ready for some street art

Ready for paint, Street art, Words

The city I live in has been catching up on the idea of street art cheering up the oh so gray and sometimes dull cityscape.

Now this is something that has been going in the towns of Finland, but the progress is a bit slow. Luckily there are some open minded people like our cityboss Jouni Töyrylä who makes things like electric switchboards look much nicer by commissioning young artist to paint them. I have seen these switchboards painted in Helsinki, Tampere, Jyväskylä and in many towns in Finland and I would like to see more. Maybe one day the city centers will have them all look good.

Now I am going to add to the collection next week. I had to go with a theme, but it was a good one that I liked and I am going to do my best with it. The most important thing is color, bright and vibrant, that is what I am going for.

I already got the paints and now I just need to refine the concept for monday.

With these I should be able to get something like this, the only thing is that all the bright reds were out when I ordered so I will have to see if I can do without.

Ready for paint

Last friday I had some help and got a lot of work done.

I will explain the progress in detail on the W.I.P section later.

It was a damn hot day, and that is why my beautiful assistant is topless.

The pictures, now.
