Hailuoto library exhibition in august 2019

So what’s been happening lately. In the beginning of august me and my friend Kati Juvani set up an exhibition in Hailuoto library and it’s open until the end of august. If you decide to visit check the library open hours since it’s not open every day. Hailuoto is an island next to Oulu and it still has the charm of the old days when you didn’t need to lock your bike when you went to the grocery store. And that’s because it’s quite small and you have to go there by a ferry. Anyway the local library seems to…

Zine

I finally got to make a zine with my artwork on it.. To the cover i chose my ‘Moonflower II’ drawing. And did some top notch lettering with my new friend wacom drawing tablet. In my original plans, a zine was going to be my ‘sixth piece’ in this ‘6 X’ exhibition we are having at the moment in Valvegalleria. In addition to my 2 paintings and 3 drawings. Originally i wanted to print it online and design it carefully with time and make it all nice, but as it turned out, i spent all my time painting my last…

About a painting..

I thought i’d write a little bit about my new mixedmedia painting ‘Atman’. It’s going to be in WABGNET spring summer Exhibition in Helsinki, starting today!!

I started this painting in 2016 and had one version of it on display back then in my solo exhibition in galleria Kooma, Oulu.

First post!

Welcome to my new fresh web page! (Click on the heading or image to see the full post) This is me and Otto. I’m the artist behind the artwork on this page and he is just interfering with everything.

You will find some general info about my…
