For the very first time, Kolibrí Festivaali receives an international artist! Marisol Misenta, better known as Isol, she is an incredible Argentinean illustrator. She has also written many of the texts in her books. She has published 22 titles and these have been translated into 18 languages. Her warm, humorous and intelligent narrative visual style was recognized in 2013 with the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award (ALMA) in Sweden.
About her motivation to collaborate with Kolibrí Isol has said “I’m very excited about going to Finland and being part of Kolibri festival, especially because I’ve never been there but I know about the country’s great education and sustainability policies. I’m looking forward to meeting you all, exchanging experiences, learning and sharing my works as an illustrator and book writer. Because I come from such a distant place, Argentina, I’m very curious to find out if we laugh at the same things”.
