“Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?”

4FkZsJj

I did this wall painting couple of weeks back. It is next to Wanha Kauppahalli, in Helsinki. It’s 6m x 2,4m. I did it with spray paint and a stencil. There’s about 1900 little 5cm x 5cm color pieces in the painting. Name of the painting is “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?”, a Blade Runner nod.

Wanha Kauppahalli is being renovated at the moment, it’s packaged. You can go check it out if you want. There’s also about 20 other wall paintings there.

I love to paint. This piece was particularly fun to do because I haven’t really spray painted or used a stencil at all. All new for me. I intended the characters to be robots at first, but when they started looking like space invaders, I just went ahead and continued on that path.

This was part of Knitted City, a Multicoloured Dreams project. http://mcdreams.wordpress.com/

Posteljoona Typography

Did a record cover for a friend. Well, a single cover. A typographic bundle of joy.

I made a couple of different color versions of it. The one I liked was the colorful one. The client went with the red / paper texture -version, which turned out good too, in my opinion. I’m just such a sucker for colors. What can I say.

Shape/Shift / So Divided

Awesome January news! I was approached by Lisa and the folks of Inkygoodness. They are a good bunch of creative people, organizers of quality art events.

Inkygoodness is putting up a show, Fiend Projects, to the Designcenter de Winkelhaak in Antwerp and they asked me to be one of the featured artists. I was honored to participate. There’s 25 artists (including me) taking part of the exhibition.

The theme is Shape/Shift.

“A being who has the ability to change its shape into that of another person, creature, or other entity or finds its shape involuntarily changed by someone else.”

I decided to do a character, a being, that is in the process of being morphed. There’s an entity of maybe a bit more evil character growing out of the main character. The main character is sitting while the darker bubbly guy is trying to make itself some arms and legs and start living on its own.

Earlier Inkygoodness has been collaborating with Pictoplasma, McBess, Muxxi and other great artists.

Oh, and one more thing, as my main man Columbo would say. This was made with Adobe Illustrator (and with Photoshop). I havent really used Illustrator before, but now I’m determined to make it my friend, by force.
