Aino Lius (FN)
Aino Lius (aka aips) is an illustrator and graphic designer from Finland, currently working as an independent artist as well as working with children in elementary schools. She is an absolute lover of science fiction, children’s books and games. These as well as the Finnish forests, interesting characters, post apocalyptic scenarios and her ever growing doll collection inspire her to make worlds in her mind, that she then brings to life through her creations. aips art has little consistency and jumps from styles, genres and mediums constantly.
Searching for the fitting representation of the project at hand, she will keep bringing cute characters and colourful images to life while breaching on the edge of darkness and dystopia. Forever wanting to say something, to voice her opinion and getting in trouble for it, she still gets through it all with energy, excitement and a very positive attitude!
