Aleksi Martikainen

Tell us about yourself Aleksi

 

My background is in traditional printmaking techniques, but for some time I have been working more with kinetic sculptures and I have taken my first steps to video art as well.

 

My art snoops around Finnish national romantic landscapes and explores details in and around nature that have grabbed my attention. At the same time I am in search of sensitivity and the courage to speak out.
To accept myself.

Name us an artist that inspiers you

 

There are several artist who have had an impact on me, but maybe most important thing in my  career has been my family´s support.

 

What will you be showing at Rånäs this summer? 

I will bring to Rånäs kinetic sculptures, photographs, etching prints and a video piece.
