Small Heroes

Tommi Matikka

Animated superheroes are running, bouncing and flying over the rooftops of Dakar like in a platformer video game. They are not in control of their skills, and each time they take off, they end up falling all the way to the ground. The soundtrack imitates the sounds of classic video games.

Tommi Matikka graduated in visual arts from Satakunta university of Applied Sciences in 2007. Matikka has made animation based video art since 2008. He runs a cinematic video art collective Together Forever Studio with his wife Maria Matikka. In his videos Matikka fluently combines poetry, animation and soundtracks. The core of this art is found in the smallness of human experience. Matikka’s works have been seen in many solo and group exhibitions, festivals and events.
