Juliana Hyrri (b. 1989) is a Helsinki-based visual artist, illustrator and award-winning cartoonist. She holds a Master of Arts degree from Aalto University and is studying for a Master of Fine Arts at the Academy of Fine Arts Helsinki. Hyrri’s illustration style is a hybrid of traditional and digital, with a focus on lines and textures made by traditional methods. She enjoys the combination of a rough and airy imprint, a delicious picturesqueness, and the versatility of working in the field of art. The subjects close to her heart are vegetation and nature, animals, childhood themes and interiors, but Hyrri is also happy to grasp abstract, psychological and philosophical themes. Her clients include the Kone Foundation, the Ministry of Education and Culture, the City of Tampere and the University of the Arts Helsinki.
