Jollygoodfellow combines city and nature, with influences from both old and the new. They are masters of high tech and low tech block printing, screen printing and other experimental printing processes. “We like to work through the printing process from ideation to the tangible work. The editions are therefore small in number.”
Jollygoodfellow is a duo consisting of Esa and Lisa Tanttu, Esa is also a graphic designer focussing on interactive design and as it happens that he puts on his pop-jeans and plays drums. Lisa has studied art pedagogy at Konstfack, she is more interested in how images affect us rather than creating artwork itself. She loves experimenting with waste materials such as toilet rolls and styrofoam
“Our goal is to save the planet and therefore, we insist on using organic cotton, second hand garments and other fair materials. In our work with the prints, we have a desire for the timeless (they should in all cases live longer than the latest mobile phone model).
