Artist Pertti Kukkonen

Talvelantie 6, Helsinki

Pertti Kukkonen (s. 1954, Hämeenlinna) created this relief on the wall opposite the entrance in the Helsinki City Hospital Malmi’s ambulance tunnel. The relief depicts four human figures that seem to be stepping out of the wall.

The work was produced under the Percent for Art programme, and it belongs to the collection of the City of Helsinki, managed by HAM Helsinki Art Museum.
