Sami Korhonen

“From his early childhood artist Sami Korhonen was already drawing objects, pets and costumes for imaginary characters, he reproduced everything seemed real in his child’s world. It was in fact when he won his first album to color that he became interested in drawing and art. But, as he had no colored pencils, he drew his first Snow White in black pencil. Since then, he began to draw and color with whatever came to his hand, created makeup, varnished nails, drew jewelry and gave life to fantasy character carefully preserved by his mother until today.


As a teenager he began to create unusual pieces for his friends, using all kinds of materials and leaving aside the world of reality and tendentiousness to dive into the imagination when creating costumes to his characters.


Sami has never created a way to dress, but clothes to dream. It is through this concept and through his experiences on artistic costume design that he created costumes for many theatre and film projects in Europe.”
