Sami Korhonen was born in Helsinki, Finland, in 1977. From his early childhood he 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. But, as he had no coloured pencils, he drew his first Snow White in black pencil.
Since then, he began to draw and colour with whatever came to his hand, created makeup, varnished nails, drew jewellery and gave life to fantasy character carefully preserved by his mother until today.
As a teenager he began to create unusual pieces for her 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.
