Tristor Blue (aka Matteus Pentti, b. 1984) is a Finnish artist, illustrator and art educator with a Masters degree from Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture in Finland. In his colorful work, Tristor is focused on the Queer male figure, creating sensual illustrations and paintings. Blue’s intimate marker and ink portraits are made from live models and reference photos sent by his followers on social media. This collaborative approach allows for the model to explore and express himself in the process. Through accepting artistic gaze and playful, loose expression, Blue aims to present tools for building a sex-positive and confident body image.
