Finland’s Yle Teksti-TV will once again be broadcasting their world-renowned teletext art Advent calendars, all-new for 2022. You’d think it’s becoming a yearly tradition or something!
Each day throughout the month of December, a new artwork will be shown on page 832 of the Finnish Broadcasting Company’s flagship teletext service. By early 2023, they will have built into a neat little teletexthibition of 30 pleasant pixel pieces from over a dozen international artists.
But that’s not all! Acclaimed graphic artist and teletext researcher Wim Dewijngaert has another festive surprise in store – a different type of Advent calendar. This will be a single image that slowly builds on page 831 over the course of four weeks, with the whole thing being revealed on Christmas Day.
If you aren’t able to access the Yle teletext service on your television, fear not! It’s available online here, but as usual, the artworks will only be there for a limited time.
I won’t spoil everything, but below is a brief taster of the artworks to come – Mohammad Fidyan Genial’s artwork for 1st December. Merry Scoremas, everyone!
