James Rönkkö Venezuela

Cover Image - James Rönkkö

James Rönkkö had two teenage experiences: one with his friends in Venezuela where he grew up, and one online in a community of coming-of-age kids around the world making electronic music and releasing it on SoundCloud. Design came by chance when these friends needed flyers, gig posters or album art. Knowing a bit of Photoshop, he began making “weird cover art” and found it came more naturally to him than the music had. He’s since created his own analog-digital hybrid image-making, blending old and new technologies to create lo-fi, textural, imperfect compilations of found images and his own photography or mark-making.
