Focus on: Pietari Posti's GIANTS!

I am a fan of Pietari Posti's art.
I dig the modern graphic retro vibe he creates.
He uses neon bright colours, which I'm cool with.
I'm a little in love with his GIANTS! series, and here's why:





I also really need to get my hands on a copy of NaïveModernism and Folklore in Contemporary Graphic Design. The title says it all: modernism, folklore, contemporary, graphic design. Yup, sign me up! Pietari did the cover of Naïve & is featured inside. Some of my other faves are inside, too, like Helen Dardik, Tes One, Doublenaut, Darling Clementine, Matte Stephens, Tad Carpenter, Jenn Ski and so many others. 
Pietari Posti is a Finnish artist living in Spain. That in its own right sounds kind of awesome, doesn't it? I found a great write up about him here (out of date in 2006, but still informational). I've been meaning to do a Posti post for a while, but better late than never right?
