I'm Inka Bell, a Helsinki based visual artist, mostly working with screen printing.

My work usually draws from my observations about physical and abstract spaces. I have the urge to depict certain scenarios and states of being. I'm enchanted by the idea of how much can be expressed with how little. Paper plays a central role in my work, which I use for printing or shaping into new forms.
