Inka Järvinen

close

I'm Inka Järvinen, a Helsinki based printmaker, mostly working with serigraphy and stone lithography.

My work usually draws from my observations about physical and abstract spaces. I have the urge to depict certain scenarios and states of being. I'm enchanted by the idea of how much can be expressed with how little. Often counter forces and their relation are present in my work.

I'm also one of the founding partners of the graphic design agency Tsto, established in 2010. Some of my earlier collages can be viewed here and illustrations here.
