"Imagination is more important than knowledge"
I get my inspiration from street art, events in my life, feelings, dreams and people. It's about finding beautiness from pain and discovering the small things that are hard to describe in words. Most of the time i feel the pictures come trough me, I'm just holding the pen and they make themselves.
Some basic info:
- I grew up in the middle of a forest in Finland
- I've been drawing/painting/creating for all of my life
- I've studied multimedia for three years, including studies in sound, photography, multimedia and video.
- At the moment I live in Helsinki and work as a freelancer of graphic design/ painter.
