They were made by Gunnar Forsström for the Helsinki 450-year celebration in 1950, but were never published. So this is true unique poster art. We are therefore proud to bring you these high quality reprints.
The sculpture is located at the Market Square in central Helsinki.

A high-quality post-card, printed in Finland on Finnish paper.
The artist Gunnar Forsström studied at the Central School of Applied Arts between 1913 and 1916. Together with the artist Göran Hongell he founded a decoration agency in the beginning of the 1920s, which received attention for its production?of high-class posters.
Gunnar Forsströms debut as a glass painter in 1932 was marvellous. In a competition for glass paintings to be chosen for Oulu cathedral, Forsström won both first and second prize. The third prize went to the famous artist Lennart Segerstråle.
Forsström came to be responsible for the artistic decoration of several public buildings, restaurants, banks and churches. Among his greater works can be mentioned the chapel at Hietaniemi Cemetery in Helsinki and Olaus Petri Church in Helsinki.
