Biography

As much as you could believe that Antti Kalevi’s drawings are made from scraps of fluorescent and primary coloured paper, they’re actually all created digitally. Loose, expressive and chock-full of happy fruits, animals, humans and shapes with eyes, Antti’s work is sunshine by way of a graphic tablet. “I like to use humour in my pictures every now and then, but I also try to make beautiful images,” Antti says. “If you look my work from far away it’s often very simple, but close up is full of small details.” An Aalto graduate, Antti spent some time working in Reykjavik and dreams of taking his studio on the road. For now he’s concentrating on editorial illustration, textile design, ceramics and other commissions, and is happy in his work as long as he retains his trademark playfulness. In the future he’d like use his fun, analogue and digital skills to create large, indoor murals and design and illustrate his own set of umbrellas.
