Kira Leskinen is a visual artist and photographer from Helsinki, Finland. For the past couple of years she has been using flatbed scanner as her main tool.

Leskinen seeks clear forms. She creates abstract compositions where colors play a key role. Red moves towards, yellow stays still and black becomes a void. In her workprocess she mixes traditional collage-like technique with the possibilities of digital technology. As a result, fascinating distortions and errors occur.

Susanna Sivonen works mainly on textile design and illustration, but above all, on things that make you smile.

“The real everyday life is a gift. As someone wise said: Happiness is not a destination, it’s a way of life. My way as a designer is to point out little things of normal daily feelings and make art of all the small details there, just because I want to share it, with a smile. I believe in positive things and if my art can share the flow, my way of life is worth a smile.”
