Santtu Mustonen is a Finnish artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York. He is interested in visualizing the emotions of suspense, excitement, distortion, and the surreal through painting, movement, and new technologies. Organic patterns, natural science, and movement inspire his work, which combines handcrafted and analog textures in a digital space. He animates various paintings and visual imagery by using digital tools to alter the space and sense of motion within his dynamic pieces.
Santtu’s clients include The Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences, Adobe, Wacom, Nike, Architecture for Helsinki, Zeit Magazin, PLAC Jeans, Converse, Granta Books, Husky Rescue, WIRED Magazine, Flow Festival, (Capsule), The Red Bull Music Academy, and The New York Times.
