  • composed music
  • translated texts

Erilaiset hankkeet ja yhteistyöt. Graafista suunnittelua, kuvitusta, valokuvausta, musiikin säveltämistä, kääntämistä ja muuta.


Movies, childhood, and otherness have been central themes in my artistic work. For example, Boys of Summer (2014) installation includes a montage of beautiful young men from 90s advertisements and music videos, a digitally altered panel from a Superman comic, and a (love) letter I wrote to another boy when I was five years old.

On my website, I feature four of my works, two bearing the same title, Boys of Summer, from 2014 and 2016, and the works Pervert Art (2015) and Pervert Art 2 (2016), which can be found on the art page, link below.

Taide - Jani Nummela
Art educator and an artist. Graphic design, music, languages and writing.

I have also explored these same themes in academic texts, such as in my master's thesis, Found in Translation (2021), from which I have written a condensed essay. You can find it in the TEXTS section.


Music and sounds.
