"This blog is not necessarily for lovers of art, it includes a variety of topics and whatever. I'm a painter who likes to know what's really going on in the world today. So you might find anything from Shamrocks to Salmiakki mentioned here on my blog. There will of course be some boring, factual and informational posts, but I'll keep them to a minimum, I promise!

And I might get a bit nostalgic now and then.

So you have been warned!"

Thank you Helsinki. Kiitos!!

It's been quite a while since my last post here. So I won't delay with this one.
I just wanted to thank all the good citizens of Helsinki and those who came from elsewhere to visit my small art exhibition last weekend at the Cable Factory (Kaapelitehdas) in Helsinki.

Having acquired the standard space for the event I could only display a small sample of my work. I was however very happy with the positive feedback and comments I received from visitors. As this exhibition was part of Helsinki Design Week 2010 I opted to choose some of my more design and graphic-based pieces on this occasion.
One painting I had recently completed was my 'Helsinki Cathedral' which I decided not to include here as I thought it would look out of place at a design fair.
So here's a first webview of this painting.

I did however take two new artworks to the Cable Factory last weekend.

The first painting is titled 'Snowblind' (right) and the second is a tetraptych titled ' Fourteen Angry Trees' which can be seen in the video of the event below.

And finally, here's a few snapshots of the day.
Thank you!!
