Kustaa Saksi

Kustaa Saksi’s illustrations are a syrupy disarray of elements: playful, paradoxical, often over-glossy, inviting, troubling, messy, and yet strangely clear. Radiatingmeaning, bending what’s real and distilling what’s unreal he combines organic touches and viscous shapes into new world psychedelia. After spending many years in Paris, the Finnish born illustrator found his studio on the roof of an ancient chocolate factory in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Saksi has been working with various clients in the world of fashion, music and entertainment. His world of imagination with strict Scandinavian design roots illustrate the wonderful world of surrealistic landscapes, strange characters and strong atmosphere.
