Comment
アリ・ペルコネンは2011年度のフィンランド若手作家(ジャンルを問わず年に一人、優れた若手作家に与えられる国からの賞)に選ばれた今最も勢いのある作家です。版画の基本を踏まえたうえで自分の感覚に忠実に新しい表現を積極的に捜し求めています。

Ari Pelkonen is a dynamic artist who won the Finnish young artist award (the national award which is given to the nominated young artist of any genre of the year) in 2011. Within the framework of printmaking he explores new expressions through his unique sensibility.
