Niina Mantsinen (born 1986) is a textile artist from North Karelia, Finland, whose works are based on graffiti, street art and traditional ryijy wall rugs. In her ryijys, Mantsinen combines the urban and illegal sides of graffiti with cosy, warm and traditional textiles. This tension is what makes the works fascinating.
