Artist Kalervo Palsa (1947-1987) was a Finnish visual artist known especially for his original depictions of the macabre, death and sexuality. In his art he made keen observations of the soars spots of a small community, as well as the darker side of the whole society. Palsa lived and worked in Narikka, an area habited by the poor socially and down and out of Kittilä at the time. Read more about the artist and his life here.
