“Pietari’s work exhibits a profound understanding of the value of well balanced composition; using colour, varying line thickness, shape and tone to create congruent artwork.”
— Ape on the Moon
Inspired by the beauty of nature and its creation of the female form, Pietari Posti’s work celebrates this beauty by simplifying it down to clean lines and crisp, bold shapes. His experience studying graphic design in Lahti, Finland, is evident in his illustrative compositions. Small editorial works are arranged with the eye of a designer, and typography plays a large part in the posters, book covers and identities he is commissioned to create. Infused with a deep sense of tradition and a modern aesthetic, his work exudes both heritage and timelessness. Pietari now operates Studio Posti from Barcelona, churning out work for magazines and brands worldwide, while being featured in a number of illustration and design books.
