Jaakko Pallasvuo

Jaakko Pallasvuo (Finland, 1987) approaches the art ecosystem he expertly inhabits with an ironic edge. His comic-strip mini-essays – satirising our reliance on hypocritical complacency for survival under platform/surveillance capitalism – have more than 17,000 followers on Instagram. Pallasvuo may be using language – both English and Finnish – extensively, but he remains an eminently visual artist, working in a variety of media: drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, prints, installation, video and performances.
