Vibrant, Obscured Images: Art by Vesa Peltonen
Vesa Peltonen is an artist and designer based in Eastern Canada. The artist was born in Finland but came to Canada as a child where he developed his unique style of vibrant, obscured images that showcase the hidden beauty in all manner of scenes and subjects.
Many of Vesa’s works come in the form of edited photographs. The artist starts with an image and adds extra effects or digitally-drawn lines and other details, creating an interesting composite. His series of jazz musicians features seemingly hand-drawn colored lines that serve to illustrate the color, movement and originality of the music.
As we talked about in our last feature of Vesa’s work, the artist offers custom art prints which are available for sale through his website. Vesa has also worked in collaboration with a local fashion designer to create wearable works of art in the form of scarves, wraps and shirts. The artist’s more abstract, color-focused works are quite well suited to this application.
