Antti Nyyssölä is a finnish artist, whose work is based on painting and it’s tradition. Yet in realisation he utilises many different sorts of found, everyday materials such as cuttings, tarp, adhesive tapes, stickers and paper. The chosen material partly forms the content of the work, and also leads the way for the visual motif. Sublime and classy themes are dealt with using aesthetics familiar to low or countercultures. The works exist between abstract and figurative, painting and sculpture, or they are all of these at the same time.
During his residency Nyyssölä continues his work with unique, hand made artist books. Nyyssölä is going to collect his material for these from the streets and markets, public and semi-public and anti spaces of Tokyo. In these books, seemingly random items create a tactile map, and gain their meaning through combination with other random items.
