Heikala, the mythical nature of watercolor

This post is also available in: Español (Spanish)

Mythology, nature and innocence in Heikala’s illustrations and paintings

Heikala is a watercolor and mixed painting artist originally from Finland with a very friendly style for all. His work ranges from the coexistence of mythical creatures, nature, to the mythology of his birthplace.

Heikala’s studies were in graphic design at the Lahti Design Institute. And for about five years he has been working on his individual projects, all with a unique style.

It consists of the use of materials such as ink and watercolor mainly, thus forming unique textures and combinations. Which he develops in illustrations for children inspired by fantasy.

Additionally, each illustration shows characters that can be taken from the real world or from a fantasy one; mainly from the mythology that accompanies the stories of Finland and the Nordic culture.

Creatures dressed in leaves, dragons, and even witches are just a few examples of what he features in his work. Furthermore, he also complements them with very traditional landscapes full of fauna and nature.

Thus, over the years he has perfected his style of ink and watercolor; he has also experimented with other techniques including posters and colors. However, you can still appreciate the simplicity of his strokes and the importance of colors to the uniform style of watercolor.
