Janine Rewell

Janine Rewell is a Helsinki-based artist and illustrator with a crush on geometry. Her style is characterised by pure vector lines flirting with decorative shapes that bloom into bold and colourful compositions. Rewell’s fantastical work is extremely versatile, applied to many objects and various outputs, her illustrations escape from paper onto human skin and into commercial campaigns and art galleries. Janine studied graphic design at the University of Art and Design Helsinki (FI) as well as at the Rhode Island School of Design (US) and has been working as a freelance illustrator and an artist since 2006. In addition to numerous group exhibitions, Rewell’s solo shows extend to Spain, Poland and China. Her designs have received numerous awards from National and International competitions including Cannes Lions Advertising Festival and ADC*E.
