► Riiko Sakkinen (b. 1976) is a Helsinki-born European who uses art as a weapon for demolishing the walls that divide people. Describing his art as “turborealist”, Sakkinen takes an acerbic dig at the injustices perpetuated by capitalism. He systematically steals imagery from the world of advertising and marketing mascots, where everything has a price tag – even the artist’s used underpants. This book presents the work of an irrepressible provocateur through highlights from the Serlachius Museums’ extensive collection of works by Sakkinen.
Gösta’s Little Art Library is a series of publications produced by the Serlachius Museums featuring gems from Gösta Serlachius’s exquisite collection and recently accessioned major works by notable contemporary artists.
