Pekka Kurki

The artist presents himself:

I’m a graphic designer living in Seinäjoki city in Southern Ostrobothnia, Finland. I work as an Art Director at a local marketing agency. Inspiring moments are everywhere and usually they reveal themselves in little details such as textures found in nature, shadows on the floor or faces seen in the cracks of asphalt. By taking part in the poster contests I wanted to challenge myself as an artist and create something simple but yet captivating. I think that’s a definition of a good poster.  Follow me on Instagram.
