HELSINKI, Finland – Are you a proud owner of the brand new Nokia N9 and happen to like graffiti? If you wish to customize your device with a swanky wallpaper, why not check out the N9 graffiti wallpaper now available for free in the Nokia Store? On a misty August morning, graffiti artist Trama sprayed the letter N and the number 9 on a graffiti wall in the former industrial area Kalasatama in Helsinki, Finland.
Why graffiti? Nokia’s Marketing Manager Jussi Mäkinen, who was overseeing the project, tells: “Graffiti is something different, just the like the Nokia N9. We believe that the Nokia N9 is going to appeal to a lot of urban, young people in big cities. These are also the same people who often appreciate graffiti.”
But isn’t it a criminal act to make graffiti? “This is a legal graffiti wall set up by the City of Helsinki for graffiti artists. Graffiti is a form of art!”
Here are some photos and a short video clip about the making of the wallpaper.
Trama has been making graffiti since the 80s and he now travels around the world in graffiti events.
If graffiti is not your cup of tea, there are also a lot of other wallpapers available for the Nokia N9 in the Nokia Store – not to mention all the apps, games and other great content.
