About Anssi Sojakka

My focus is on the internal tension within the work and how it manifests itself on the outside. These tensional landscapes that I create are my way of exploring and looking at mental tension and trauma, and more importantly the feeling that they create within us. I like to think of my work like wounded souls; portraits of the human condition.
