My art is typically repsesentative or pure abstract or surreal as well often minimal, which is typically not depending of time or place. I normally don't paint or draw anything human made things.
My style is variable, but it is often strong and expressive (often expressionistic) with high feelings, emotions and is some how spiritual (not religional). I don't produce long serials same kind of works, except now I'm making serial of abstract imaginary faces. I jump from style onto other. I don't want to limit myself, so there are no exact borders in my art. I often have to be near madness, because I think I can't create anything great from normality. I'm not sure where am I going on, but I try to be every year better and better and being on my way forwards.
Specially then when you give your personal best there are the loudest silence.
"You don't need to know what to do, you need to understand what you are doing.
I start painting in 1992, when I made my first oil painting Small Harmony. In 1992 I often practised to make hyperrealistic drawings, but soon I understood, that my way is different... My next big interests were surrealism and futurism, and them still are...within abstract art...
my art is not commercial, so it might looks like it is not as high level than my older works, but the truth is that I'm better and higher level than ever in my own history. I'm promising to faceless world about something, which for I am not sure am I able to give anything or if I am, would I...
Never knows, what's gonna happen next or is it happening anything...
Help yourself if I can't. I'm not inside in creamed asses society...!!! Or how it goes in English...! :-)
PayPal is accepted payment method. Just take a contact to me with e-mail.
My e-mail: email@example.com
Telephone number is only for confirmed callers from outside of Finland. I shall record every phone call conversation, which is happening in English...
These small sizes of photographs of art you may download as free for non-commercial use!!!
You may ask the techniques and dimensions of works by email...!!!
I'm not a coder or other kind of computer guru, so this is the best site I may offer to you!!! ...but anyway I want to do everything here (without giving anything to professionals) myself so I can update this when I want without waiting somebody other can, because nothing might be happened even paid.
My problem in making of art is that I do art for people, not for the institutions, but subjectively myself fascination art. So people can see something relevant in my art, despite the fact that the interpretation is different.
Other people may do what they can, but I do what I want even if I can't. Life is a process of learning.
Some one might think there are grammatical mistakes, but my silence might be loud and noise visible and so on... so might my red smell bitter and again so on..., ...
I did this today, and what I get was silence... Is this so amazingly terrible or only diffrent angle...to see..., what is wrong in this world, when everything new thing in your mind is bullshit and when you offering old shit, it is okay...,,... keep you shits I keep mine...
...and I'll continue, or should I say start making more humanity and repsesentative and really concepsual or how it goes things without caring are there any likers ever...
Anyway the name of (sketch)work is "Riding on Father Earth."
