Graffiti artist Tomi Lastunen painting a transformer house wall. Lastunen is a well known street artist who also has taught graffiti painting in schools.

In 2017 at nearby Hiedanranta (old paper mill area in Lielahti) there was a huge international street art event called Spraycankontrol / Meeting of Styles. For one week street artists from Finland and six different other countries painted thousands of squaremeters of old factory walls in monumental scale inside Hiedanranta factory area, which has made the area a showcase of graffiti works and different styles ever since.
