AWARD WINNER 2011
Anssi KasitonniAnssi Kasitonni makes his sculptures and animation films the hardest way. Combining art and humour in a way that makes the viewer want to return to the work is a trick that few have mastered. He is one of those few.
”I don’t do computers,” Kasitonni says. His boyish, endlessly inventive works are handicraft products realized using the resources and materials that are to hand.
Kasitonni comes from a generation that, already in its childhood, imbibed popular culture in all its forms. “It is short step from tuning a moped to making a sculpture.”Timo Valjakka
