Even though the e-zine has already been published in April 2014, its content is still amazing and interesting to read. Have you ever looked at Munich from the perspective of the skateboarder scene?

There should certainly be a second booklet to continue the story.

A WTD mural in Ljubljana

Between 4 and 6 July, a unique mural appeared in the city centre on the building of Ljubljana Administrative Unit, created by Finnish artist Pallo Ollap.

MURAL ARTS RESIDENCY

As part of the international multidisciplinary project What’s the Deal? (WTD), Kino Šiška has hosted an international Mural Arts Residency. In 2014 the participating artist was Pallo Ollap.

In recent years, Ljubljana as well as other cities have been faced with the issue of inconsiderate and mostly unrestricted growth of billboards, large public LCD displays and other types of invasive advertising. Almost any large portrait area near main urban arteries is being transformed into an area designated for advertising and marketing. With the help of murals, WTD and Kino Šiška wish to redistribute some of these areas for artistic purposes.

And who is Pallo Ollap? This young Finnish artist is a student of applied arts and design at Aalto University, Helsinki. He creates illustrations and paintings, mainly for fun, but occasionally also to make a living. For more than ten years, he has been an active street artist and his murals can be admired in the streets of several Finnish cities.
