Matti Pohto

Illustration of Matti Pohto, a forgotten man who saved the Finnish literature. Journalist Teemu Laaksonen made a big effort in 2017 to tell a story of Matti Pohto for the bigger audience. With KulttuuriCocktail we made an online project that included videos, articles and illustrations about this great man that nobody knows. We won a “Koura” award in 2018 from the project, 1st Prize of the “Best Cultural Content” category. Nobody knows specifically how Matti Pohto looked like, but there are some cues of that.
