Kustaa Saksi

Kustaa Saksi

Finnish born illustrator Kustaa Saksi has applied her ideas to advertising, installations, murals, pattern design for products, and textiles for clothing, as well as tapestries. Ms Saksi recently collaborated with Finnish design company, Marimekko, on their spring 2015 home collection. From what I have seen already, the collection features some charming retro-inspired pieces.

Kustaa Saksi’s work ranges from the absurd to ethereal. Combining organic shapes and wild colours she creates rather unique landscapes, that are in equal parts inviting and frightening. As mentioned in the introduction, Ms Saksi’s has worked in a tremendous range of fields, crossing multiple disciplines, all the while doing it for some of the most renowned brands including Nike, Vespa, Swarovski, Microsoft, Lacoste, and Issey Miyake.

A good collection of Kustaa Saksi’s art can be found on the Hugo & Marie website.
