I'm Inka Bell, a Helsinki based visual artist, mostly working in the expanded field of printmaking.

My work usually draws from my observations about physical and abstract spaces. 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.

I have been giving courses, lectures and workshops at Aalto University, Academy of Fine Arts Helsinki, Estonian Academy of Arts, Helsinki Design School and Kalasataman Seripaja.
