Essi Ruuskanen

I am a self taught street artist from Helsinki, Finland. My motivation for street art comes from a will to turn public spaces into inspirational places that promote civic activity, fiestas, spontaneous conversations, smooching in public, family picnics and whatever we feel like doing. My style is illustrative and playful and I like trying things also out of my comfort zone. In addition to painting I love broccoli, Lapland, word jokes and rye bread.
