Comment
ユルキ・マルッカネンは推薦者と同じユヴァスキュラで制作している工房仲間です。自分で撮った写真をランダムに組み合わせることでインスピレーションを得て制作を進めるのが基本ですが、彼は同時に優れた素描家でもあり、そこから来るバランス感覚が彼独自の世界観を作り上げています。

Jyrki Markkanen is a friend from the craft centre in Jyväskylä. He derives inspiration by randomly combining his own photographs. He is also an excellent draughtsman and through his aesthetic creates his own world.

 

Born in 1956
