Jyrki Nissinen

Written by Maura Manninen on . Posted in Artists, Finnish artists

Jyrki Nissinen (FIN, b. 1982)is an artist-musician who is one the most prolific comic creators in Finland. His most known comics are Borgtron and Auttaja Hai.

Nissinen’s comics are absurd trips full of unexpected twists and dark humour, but they also depict the day-to-day of those excluded and alienated by society and the surrealism of everyday life. His latest work Viihdealus Dream Zone is a raw behind-the-scenes tale of a truly extreme reality TV show.

As a musician Nissinen is actively on the road both solo and with his bands Seksihullut and Laskettu aika.
