Artist of the month:

Karl Korsar

In January 2022, the artist whose artwork is featured on the cards inside our Gay Packs is the Estonian artist Karl-Artur Korsar.


Born in the small city of Tartu in southeast Estonia, the son of a tailor and younger brother to couture dressmaker Hanna Korsar, Karl moved to Tallinn aged 19 to study textile design at the Estonian Academy of Arts. Here, alongside a technical understanding of fabrics, he developed his passion and flair for print design.

Following his studies, Karl spent 5 years working on various freelance commissions in London, Melbourne and Sydney, before returning to Estonia to focus on setting up a label with a clear and unique vision:

“I’ve always been fascinated by the dynamism of fabrics and how they spring to life when worn. I want to create clothing that people are excited to wear and which makes them feel edgy yet elegant. KarlKorsar is a gift to oneself adding a bit of spark into your everyday life – I create all of my designs with this at the forefront of my mind.”
