Read my thoughts about the concept of the My Name Is -exhibition at culture media #Aesthetic (In Finnish).

Statement

Einari Hyvönen creates lo-fi digital aesthetic inspired paintings by oil and acrylic colours with image transfer technique. He blends together popular culture through a bootleg filter with internet memes and his digital working environment to create playful visual cacophony -snapshots. The work aims to express and question the visual communication of the millennials, and to evoke to think what the imagery of this era is.
