Markus Jäntti-Tuominen

was born in Finland in 1994. He  works on a project-by-project basis employing various artistic media such as video, animation, painting, sculpture and drawing. In his work he explores cultural myths and symbols that over time become banal objects of mass production and lose their original meaning. He studied as a master student at the Berlin University of the Arts, class of Professor Robert Lucander and participated in the Master’s programme “Studio Art” at Hunter College, New York. In 2020 Jäntti-Tuominen’s Unicorn Stories exhibition was presented at the Finnish Institute in Germany in Berlin as part of its Visiting Art/ist programme.
