“Buxo Birdhouses, yellow. Limited edition of ten birhouses were made in 2011. The idea was to make a bit illegal environmental art around the Finland, and this ‘yellow’ birdhouse is proudly a part of “Life on a Leaf” project. Material: concrete and steel. Weight ~8kg.” www.facebook.com/buxone.
Joonas Mikola, born in 1987 in Turku. Works, lives and studies art education in Rovaniemi. I’m a young artist from Northern Finland and I’m inspired by many very different kind of things. Hot air balloons, Finnish nature, film material, silence, motorcycles, birds, birdhouses, boots and American old west itself. I like aerial things, spaces, space, and conversations between different elements and (ever-lasting) materials. I like to play around and experience.
