In this video, you can see an overview of what we did with the photographs and the comics of the Collection. Monday 29 May, we will show the final result of our project at Kotkantie Campus. From 10-11, you’re welcome to look at the Collection. Feel free to feel the art!
Karl Nickul was a great photographer who died in 1980. To honour his work, we wanted to show his photographs in a completely different way. That is why we tried to show his work in a creative and performance way. That is we chose to make a song and a dance about his work.
With our profile project, we want to show you the comic artists and the photographers behind the artworks. This time, we introduce you to comic artist Ville Tietäväinen We went to his studio in Helsinki, where we got the change to know him better. Ville Tietäväinen is a really talentful comic artist. The government also saw this, and gave him some money to make a book about an immigrant. Tietäväinen also made a comic for the Collection. Next to comic artist, he is also an architect, graphic designer and illustrator. Excited to know more about him? Don’t wait any longer and watch the video!
in out trip to Helsinki we interviewed Johanna Rojola, a well known comic artist. She wrote and draw about different subjects like feminism and political problems.
Throughout her career she noticed that there is a lot of sexism in the comic world. In this interview we only show a small part about this subject. After years of making comics she decided to stop and now she focuses on producing and teaching.
