ARTWORKS & TYPOGRAPHICS

#bypetermakela
The Design Artist

Peter Mäkelä, born 1973 in Stockholm, and grew up in central of Sweden.

With a mother from Finland and a stepfather from Italy – the upbringing was most diverse …

I don’t want to label my art and creations, but get inspired by the simplicity of artists like Lichtenstein and Banksy and the brains of renaissance men like Leonardo Da Vinci.

The quest is to create something unexpected and think beyond traditional ways.

I want a piece to be aesthetically beautiful and have a depth to it – with a unexpected twist. Sometimes with a thoughtful message, sometimes something liberating and humouristic. You never know where the creative process will take you …

Design and art are the greatest passions.

 

“Design is art
that makes itself useful”

Well come! I’m always up for a spontaneous coffee (read fika).

You’ll find me at Holmengatan 16 in the beautiful and inspiring Industrilandskapet. I’d love to show you around (after fika of course) for a walk & talk.
