Melu Public Sport Magazine presents ‘Artist: Anssi Kasitonni’
Whatever you think of art, you gotta admit that someone who builds a spaceship in their living room is worth an interview. Take this 8 minutes to take a trip down the memory lane with Anssi Kasitonni, skater and renowned visual artist. In Sahalahti Anssi talks us through old issues of Trasher, the obscene spirit of skateboarding and Ars Fennica – the renowned art award and highest prize given to visual artists in Finland.
“My ideas come from my head, I think. How they end up in there is unclear.” – Anssi
Kasitonni Anssi creates with what is at hand; moose heads become Wapiti and horses are coloured golden in the world of this curious artist. Get to know the man behind the upcoming Aladdin adaptation and hear what happens in the woods when you stumble
upon a bottle of salad dressing. Anssi’s not high. He’s just plain fantastic and Melu loves him.
