When he’s not conferring with clients in exotic locations or having tea with Imelda Marcos (true story!), Kustaa Saksi creates retro-futuristic kaleidoscopic imagery that is both daunting and irresistible. Inviting the glossy to flirt with the organic, he creates a genre of new world psychadelia that is all his own.
His work has featured in Playboy, Sleazenation, Wallpaper, and Arkitip, as he continues to rack up an impressive list of clients including Comme des Garçons, Diesel, Issey Miyake, Mercedes Benz and MTV.
THE HEROES featuers three 3D printed busts of Kustaa’s new series of war hero characters, a series of brand new artworks and an introduction to his new book of retrospective work “Off-Piste In The Land of Kustaa Saksi”.
The legendary Boudisque building in central Amsterdam plays host to Maxalot Pop-Up Gallery for Kustaa Saksi’s THE HEROES.
