Artist behind the works
I’m Minna Ristolainen, graphic artist based in Vantaa, Finland.
I mainly work with printmaking ( I started printmaking in 2004 with etching and it was love at first sight.) During the years I have studied several printmaking and painting methods with different teachers and lately I most work with monotype, etching, pvc cut and acrylic/ink painting/mixed media.
Re-occuring themes in my work are women, dreams, nature, the mystic, the unknown. I’m a member of Vantaa professional artist association and my studio is situated at Tapaus artist association premises.
I am finishing my MA studies in comparative literature and my research focus is narrative elements in contemporary art. My academic papers can be found at https://uta-fi.academia.edu/MinnaRistolainen
