Joakim Ojanen

Joakim Ojanen (°1985, Sweden)
Ojanen is an artist with an eye for the absurd. In terms of materials he has a flittering approach, but an intrinsic
style is consistently evident. Whether it be an oil painting or sculptures cascading in ceramic, his work is rich in
weird and wonderful expressions. Ojanen uses his work to communicate pieces of himself that are hard to render because they border the socially acceptable. Through a visual vocabulary of comic book-like characters and expressive paint strokes he talks about essential human emotions, relations and insecurities.
