I am a visual artist, freelance illustrator, graphic designer and graphic novelist from Finland, creating everything from surreal to beautiful. Visual art and images are my way of understanding and exploring meanings behind human experience and communicating ideas to the world.   
In addition to various art and comic projects I have worked on illustration paintings and designs for game companies. You can inquire me for work and commissions through the contact form listed below or through my email at aleksiremesart@gmail.com.
