The behemoth metal works of Helsinki based artist Miina Äkkijyrkkä make a lot of sense when you look at her schooling history. Originally studying horses at Equine College Ypäjä, then spending years studying dairy farming at the Dairy Farming School of North-Savo, she finally transitioned to The School of Fine Arts of Finland. That’s where Äkkijyrkkä went big, really big. Her recent sculptures use car parts (sometimes nearly the entire automobile) to create strikingly huge and expressive bovine.
