Henrika Kurkimäki

Henrika Kurkimäki is a Finnish visual- & tattoo artist. She mostly paints digitally & with oil paints, and draws with markers and pencils. Her high synesthesia intertwines all sensory stimuli into repeating patterns, textures, symbols and rythms that then translate into paintings and drawings through an almost purely subconscious process. She also draws inspiration from dreams, scifi, fantasy, esotericism and the nature – cycles of birth and death, symbolized by cardinal shapes, elements such as bones, moss, worn skin and water, as well as moments of stillness and explosions of energy.
