Jan Pitkäsalo is a student in the TAMK Fine Art study path. He works mainly with pencil, ink and charcoal. Having studied fine art in Juhannuskylän koulu and Tammerkosken lukio, Pitkäsalo has focused on the individual, the environment, and ways of thinking in his artwork.
The artist wants the viewer to think about how isolating oneself is unhealthy and how people can work towards a future where no one needs to be alone. He is also interested in finding ways to deal with trauma, loss and other issues that individuals face and usually need help coping with.
