Multitalented Artist Creates Whimsical Illustrations

Juliana Hyrri’s artwork stands out in the crowd. Whether she’s making installations, illustrations, paintings, or postcards, her signature styled characters, full of mischief, are present throughout her work. “I consider myself as a restless soul and I believe it’s visible in my art: I want to do pretty much everything,” she admitted in an interview with Ape on the Moon. “I work in the fields of comics, illustration, painting, drawing, installation, animation, you name it.”

Describing herself as “a painter, illustrator and sequential artist,” Hyrri hails from Helsinki, Finland, where she currently studies Visual Narrative at the Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture. She’s also completed minors in illustration and sequential art and studied art education.

“Besides art, I’m interested in collecting plants and changes: changes in life, changes in people, changes in places,” she added. Take a look at some of our favorite creations of hers.
