Marianne Kurki @mintakat is a visual artist and graphic designer living and working in Helsinki, Finland. She’s been studying in Lahti Institute of Design and The Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. Kurki is very open-minded and enjoys crossing the boundaries in the fields of visual arts. She tends to express her feelings with colors and forms, and question her own values and choices through humor.

"As an artist I’m interested in telling a story through forms and colors, interaction between people and objects, movement and emotion. My works are often personal – expressions of my inner life and sentiments, aiming to offer journeys into moments that can feel familiar and into something that can’t be described, into dream-like worlds. My inspiration can be found from city nights, neon lights and the ludicrous human nature.

I'm working on various fields of visual arts – including e.g. acrylic painting, serigraphy, video, installation art and analog photography. I'm always passionate about learning new ways to express myself, mixing techniques and exploring humanity. I believe in playfulness."
