Art Kiosk



Taidekioski – Art Kiosk was an interactive art project. I put up an atelier to old stone kiosk in Sibeliuspark in Pori for two days. Passerby were invited to order art from my art menu. The menu consisted retro kiosk treats which were translated to visual elements: Soda – sizzling, bubbling smiley faces and other symbols. Candy – sweet and cute things. Ice Cream – delicious textures, shapes. Tobacco – cityscape, chimneys. Magazine – dramatic people. Lottery – never know what you’re gonna get. The customers also got to choose if they wanted a pencil/marker drawing or acrylic painting. The only cost for the customers was the permission to take their portraits with the artwork. During the two days I did almost 40 works. Pori Spring 2012.
