Harro Koskinen, a Finnish visual artist, is 60 years today. A prominent figure in Finnish underground scene of the day, Koskinen raised some controversy in the late 1960s with his satirical pig works. The most notorious of them was "Sikamessias" ("Pig Messiah"), depicting a crucified cartoon pig, which resulted in a court case where the artist was convicted of blasphemy. pHinnWeb congratulates.
