The exhibition showcases illustrations that are based on graphic novels by Janne Parviainen. Part of the exhibition is a series of drawings where Parviainen has made versions of classic graphic art and paintings based on the characters of his graphic novel Post Man. The series consists of versions from Alfonse Mucha, Gustave Dore, M.C. Escher, and Akseli Gallen-Kallela’s work. 

Janne Parviainen is a Helsinki-based graphic novel artist, oil color painter, and light artist, who has published three graphic novels. His latest graphic novel, Rooman rajoilla was selected among the finalists from the Sarjakuva-Finlandia competition in 2022.

The exhibition is organised in collaboration with Helsinki Comics Festival as part of the 38th Helsinki Comics Festival programme.
