SAMI HAVIA, CASSETTE PAINTINGS WHAT A WONDERFUL HOMAGE!

COMMON "ONE DAY IT'LL ALL MAKE SENSE"

CURRENTLY COMPLETING HIS FIFTH YEAR OF STUDY AT THE FINNISH SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS, SAMI HAVIA STARTED HIS CONCEPT FOR THE CASSETTE TAPE PAINTING, WHEN HE WAS EXPLORING USING RECYCLED AND TRASH ITEM IN HIS WORK. HE STARTED PAINTING SELF-PORTRAITS ON THE TAPES AN WAS MOTIVATED TO EXPLORE THE MEDIUM, EVEN MORE. WHAT A GREAT IDEA TO PAY RESPECTS TOO THE CLASSIC ALBUM THAT WERE RELEASED ON TAPES FOR SO LONG (and later CDs). PEEP SOME OF MY FAVORITES FROM HIS C-CASSETTE TAPE PAINTING SERIES BELOW.
