Finsta was invited to paint a large mural in Araby, Växjö. To bring color and hope to an area with some social challenges. In order to get a connection to the neighborhood, he made a workshop at a local kindergarten prior to painting his mural, to help get an idea of what kind of residents would grow up next to his painting.

It took Finsta about a week and a half to finish the wall, but for the people he met, many of them will see it every day for years to come. In public art, Finsta tries to work with ideas that are socially responsible. He often works with a jungle theme. Finsta says that nature is a big inspiration, it is diverse, wild, strong, and colorful, and he feels that we should pay more attention to it. The painting in Araby has over the years become a meeting point for many locals. ”Let’s meet at the jungle”.
