Milan Finnie

Artist / Designer

I am an artist who pulls from design principals to inform my creative projects. I aim to be bold in the details I choose to incorporate, which include shapes, lines, minimal color, and repetition. I’m inspired by traditional art patterns from all over the world, particularly those which represent spiritual practices and symbolism. 

 

My relationship with the earth lead to my primary medium: pyrography or wood-burning art. This medium is a tribute to the earth, embodying all of the elements and affording the possibility of sustainable art practice by using local, reclaimed wood as a canvas. The style that I produce with this art form has assisted me in developing an aesthetic which appears in my digital artworks, illustrations, and beyond.

 

The work I produce hopes to connect with the viewer by providing captivating bold shapes, along with minimal lines, allowing each viewer’s imagination to meet with my own.
