Helsinki based artist Teemi Keisteri has gained a known reputation for his Ukkeli-character that he created during summer 2008. Keisteri's aim with his art is to make people happy. He makes video work, paintings and performances besides his t-shirt designs.
Unique and unisex Ukkeli t-shirts are all hand-painted by Keisteri himself and so, every shirt is a one of a kind piece.
Through Ukkeli, Keisteri comments on contemporary cultural phenomena and Finnish lifestyle with humor. Ukkeli has no taboos and can manifest itself in any form.
