jt Birds in collaboration with Jesse Kontoniemi

This print by finish artist Jesse Kontoniemi has a story that dates back to 2015 when Jesse came back to Finland after he spent time in Asia. It was early spring and he felt the flow, as birds migrated back to north: „I was looking at hundreds of birds and thought that when ice melts, maybe fishes will migrate too. Who knows, maybe we just haven't seen it. Just like that bear, it could have been there for hundreds of years, we just missed it while making ourselves busy. One day that island just disappeared and continued it's journey.“

Jesse is currently living in a cottage that's based in "Finnish Lakeland“ working as a full-time artist.
