It is time to present to you Konstrundan 2022 illustration and illustrator Jenni Tuominen! Konstrundan is arranged according to its original concept ever since the start in 2008. However, Konstrundan’s visual format has continued to change annually, as each year has its own illustration.

Konstrundan 2022 illustration!

The illustration for Konstrundan 2022 is made by the illustrator, visual artist and designer Jenni Tuominen. Jenni (b. 1976) is living and working in Porvoo. She works widely within the field of illustration, visual arts and design. In 2017 Jenni was awarded with the State Prize for Illustrations. She has designed prints for Marimekko since 2006, when her print Unessa won a design competition organized by Marimekko.

Her inspiration Jenni gets from the Finnish nature and her ceramics are sold in boutiques all the way in Japan and Hong Kong. She has the design studio Studio Jenni&Jukka together with her husband, the illustrator-graphic designer Jukka Pylväs. They write and illustrate a series of books called Jengi. Their award-winning celebratory stamp ‘Together’ was published in the spring of 2022. Jenni and Jukka’s illustration can also be seen on the streets of Porvoo, on the sides of the new library bus.

Jenni has a degree in graphic design from the University of Art and Design Helsinki and a degree in visual arts, with a major in printmaking, from the Turku Arts Academy. You can see more of Jenni’s production at www.jennituominen.com.

Jenni’s comment about the Konstrundan 2022 illustration:

‘I was delighted when I was asked to do the illustration for Konstrundan 2022. I immediately thought it could be a black and white drawing, constructed from many elements and forming a surface-like pattern that can be coloured in. Konstrundan’s diverse artists and artisans and the fields of art they represent were chosen as the theme of the illustration. I hope that my illustration delights and arouses interest to participate in the event in great numbers.’
