Our Story

Galleria Kuvitus is the only gallery in Finland to focus on the art of illustration in all its forms. Our gallery exhibitions are professionally juried and curated by staff or guest curators. Founded in 2018, the gallery has been set up in the premises of the Finnish Illustration Association in Helsinki.

Located in Kallio, just moments away from the lively Hakaniemi Market Place and the beautiful art deco church of Kallio, the gallery’s location is ideal for offering both residents and tourists a place to discover illustration art, and to escape into a cosy space which will motivate and inspire. Kallio, the name of which literally translates to “rock” or “hill”, is a hilly, hipsterish and culturally rich area on the northeastern outskirts of Helsinki.
