About artist

My name is Roope Sillanpää and I am an artist and graphic designer from Finland. I’ve been doing art ever since childhood but started my journey as an illustrator in 2013 doing shirt designs for local bands. From then on I’ve worked with dozens of bands, record companies, private clients and corporate customers from all over the world. In 2020 I officially started my own company and started doing art full time.

My main areas of expertise are illustrating music and games. I have a flair for fantastic, gothic and dark artworks, working in traditional mediums of pen&ink and oil painting. But when working on commissions there are no boundaries and I’m always up for a challenge. I have also full working proficiency in Adobe CC software and can provide services in layout, graphic design or digital art.

As for education, I have a Master of Arts degree from the University of Helsinki majoring in comparative literature, with sides of medieval studies and western philosophy. I gladly hear and discuss your ideas, no matter how high or low brow, concrete or abstract your concept might be!
