Kalevala graphic arts
The spring exhibition Kalevala symbols is a graphic artwork by a Finnish artist Mira Matikainen. She interpreted each rune of the Kalevala, so that the whole epic turned into symbols. Martikainen, who is a graphic designer, has got a lot of experience in pictorial communication.
The artist has created a symbol, a mark for each rune of 50 runes of the Kalevala. The symbols reflect the most significant event or message of the runes. Some symbols are rich and some are simple enriched with different colours.
