ARTSHI is a brand, through which the artist Rando Freiberg expresses himself connecting keywords like old and new, physical and virtual, borders and freedom. His idea is to create art which connects with everyday life and situations. Through ARTSHI, original drawings and graphic designs find their way on various mediums from T-shirts to posters or vast interior walls. The purpose is to take the contemporary art to new mediums, out of art galleries and on the streets. This way the message and the beauty of today’s art and design will touch much more viewers than it would between art gallery walls.

I work spontaneously on different waves of inspiration. Sometimes I just feel the need to create something new and enjoyable. I like to be practical and thorough. This is why I wont start to work before I can visualize the end product in almost every detail. As a result I prevent the stress which comes from having to solve unexpected problems and risk the quality of the results. Therefore the working progress is more enjoyable because everything mostly goes as planned. The most important message or theme in my works is the freedom to do whatever one desires, to follow no rules or guidelines. I want to show how refreshing it is to both the artist and the viewer to do or witness something totally unexpected. Something that doesn’t always have a meaning or a message, but simply is. I think a certain message also lies in the enjoyable tinkering process as well as in the rich details of the end results. Both have a therapic effect on me…
