Katja Tukiainen

 

Katja is a comic artist and painter with a Master’s of Art degree from the University of Art and Design in Helsinki and a Master’s of Fine Arts degree from the Academy of Fine Arts. She uses many different visual media and has often been described by critics as close to the Lowbrow movement and Neo Pop Art. She likes to use kitsch as a weapon to make people think and mask complex themes under an innocent-looking aesthetic. Her cute, girly, and figurative style and her diverse academic background make her an unique figure in the Finnish comics scene and she has never stopped studying and travelling as ways to broaden her perspective and escape the confinements of the studio and the often solipsistic art scene.
