Trama is the second generation of Finnish graffiti. His graffiti career started in -86 at Vantaa, Korso, painting walls and trains. Trama gained a reputation fast in Finland and abroad. Trama is one of the primary victims of ‘zero tolerance’ and experienced what could be called a witch-hunt. He was sentenced to imprisonment and significant fines with other graffiti artists, primarily because of a security firm’s testimonies. Trama has exhibited in HAM Helsinki Art Museum, City of Oulu Museum and Science Centre, Porvoo Art Hall, art museums of Kerava and Vantaa, and various exhibitions in Finland and abroad. At the moment, Trama lives and works in the Helsinki area.
