About me

  • Name: Marko Saarelainen
  • Profession: graffiti artist, designer
  • Expertise: album artwork and illustrations, websites and graffiti/murals.
  • Year of birth: 1975
  • Place of residence: Helsinki, Finland

As a freelancer I've done graphic design as well as web design for following bands, artists and labels: Pestilence, The Project Hate MCMXCIX, F.K.U., Sickening Horror, Full Metal Records, Monsp, Steen1, Pyhimys, Threeman Recordings and Full Scale Conflict, to name a few.

From late 2013 I begun working with and for graffiti and street art, painting commission murals as well as instructing graffiti workshops and courses.

From January 2017 to July 2017 I concentrated solely for developing my own art. That was made possible by an art grant from The Arts Promotion Centre of Finland.

During those six months I painted few large murals around Finland as well as worked on material for exhibitions. More about these adventures at Acton1.com.

Previous to my career as a freelance designer I did work as a web designer circa 2000 - 2008. Come early 2020 and I begun working as web designer, again. What goes around, comes around, indeed.

When not doing my "regular" nine-to-five's either as a professional artist or a web designer, I'm trying to spend as much time as possible with my lovely family.
