Ulo Pikkov was born in 1976 in Tallinn, Estonia. He graduated from the Art and Media School in Turku, Finland in 1998, then, in 2005, took a degree from the Institute of Law at the University of Tartu. In 2006, he became an Associate Professor in the Animation Department at the Estonian Academy of the Arts.
He regularly publishes articles, caricatures and drawings in the Estonian press. He is a prolific illustrator and is the author himself of two children's books. His animated films have garnered numerous awards from festivals all over the world.
Still, none of the above gives any indication of the beautiful and demented brain that Pikkov possesses. We are lucky to be able to showcase three of his pieces: the wicked and sick, TASTE OF LIFE; the tragic and sublime, YEAR OF THE MONKEY, and DIALOGOS which trips from image to image, making wild and marvelous and often hilarious associations..
We wish we could live inside Pikkov's head.
