Graffiti, doodles, street art, scribbling – you name it.
The location is an old match factory in Mäntsälä, southern Finland. Match making started there 1873 in a simple log house. This brick building was built next to it in 1922. Matches were made there only until 1929, after which it has been e.g. a textile and woodwork factory.
After many years of idleness, at the beginning of this century there has been attempts to transform the building into fancy loft houses – with no luck. There has been also at least three fires during the recent years. Now it seems to be some sort of street art workshop and a hidden gallery, maybe the 9th life of the factory.
If somebody will have resources to make it a home, s/he may like to save some of the graffitis …
Is there going to be 10th life for this building?
