An Interview with Mari Kasurinen creator of the My Little Pony Customs

Last week we posted an article artist Mari Kasurinen’s custom My Little Pony figures. She has created some very unique customs that are really fun. I contacted Mari, because I was curious about  how the idea to customize My Little Pony toys came to her. Here is the interview:

MillionairePlayboy: What is your art education /  background? Did that help you with your toy customizing?

Mari Kasurinen: I’ve done art all my life, I was 5-years-old when I first said that I wanted to be an artist when I grow up. I applied to Taideinstituutti, an art university in Lahti 2007 and got in. Before that I practiced by myself. Of course it helps, all though I feel that everything you learn in life affects in many areas. Expecially in art!

MPB: What artists (painting, drawing, sculpture, ect…) inspire you?

MK: My favorite artists at the moment are Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst and Outi Heiskanen.
