NFT drop by Jani Leinonen
Jani Leinonen is known for his provocative, yet playful works, criticizing capitalism and consumerism. Leinonen was propelled to fame after his infamous kidnapping of a Ronald McDonald statue from a restaurant in Helsinki, where he posted videos online threatening to "decapitate" the clown if McDonald's would not answer questions about its ethics.
In 2016, Leinonen was awarded the Finland Prize by the Ministry of Education and Culture, which is given in recognition of a significant career in arts. His work can be viewed in museums as well as private and public collections across each continent. He transformed the Stalla Madulain gallery, a 500 years old barn close to St. Moritz, into a 'chapel of remorse‘. His main creation is now featured in the 5-star hotel Dolder Grand in Zurich alongside more than 10+ of his prominent creations on permanent display.
A common pattern of Jani’s work is turning overly familiar images upside down, planting them in a weird, upside-down context, taking a stand against the superficial view of life dominated by the very modern, corporatist idea of ‘positive thinking’.
