Colors are mine only true love. 

MY IMAGES ARE COPY-PROTECTED. I LIVE IN FINLAND NORTH-SAVO PROVENCE, IN A SMALL COUNTRY TOWN CALLED LAPINLAHTI.

These two pictures below look different, but they are actually exactly the same picture, they have only different angle of view here. So it is easy to cheat an eye. 

This really did take some time for me to do. 

This one, where is gray background, was seriously difficult to do.

Op art, Pop art and art is still on, find your art way

Challenge your mind, see art differently. 

I started painting in 2015.

I photograph, I am editing paintings of my photos, my photos are calm, the paintings that I make of my photos are more restless, I have photos that have been edited and I also have unmodified photographs. I only use my own photos, when I do my photo based painting prints. I do ordinary paintings, too.  Most of my photographic prints are made from my own pictures. The below-mentioned photo prints made by Victor Vasarely are just an example of what I can do. Image editing can also be used as a tool for making art.


I edit my paintings with my own style and I have my own work habit, that is I use computer and photo editing software, when I do my photo based paintings, basically I use several different image editing programs until I get the result I want, because the different image processing programs give to the picture the tone that I want and nuances that I want. Sometimes, I paint a painting because I want to take a certain kind of photo of it, and I process that picture again. 

This picture is tribute to Victor Vasarely. I really like his art. This photo based painting print is based on optical illusion. It was difficult to do, it took me 120 hours to do it.

Below is a four pictures that I edited from a picture where was Victor Vasarely's painting Aran.  I took a picture of the cover of that art book where this painting was and I did edit that picture. 

As the Finns say, imitation is the greatest tribute. 



I am free artist, I like to play with ideas, and with different forms. 


"Art has to be fun factor, not gun factor in life."


Here is an example of what I can do with the pictures.


This black and white photo is taken according to the ready program settings in the camera.

Here is the picture after it is edited.   So, now it is a completely different photo.

"Art has to have fun, no pain something to gain".


- but unfortunately, here in Finland art is pain something to be gain-

So Finnish visual artist do here in Finland mainly available for order artwork. I explain this issue on my pages through different examples. 


I'm not doing mass production of art, or professional duplication of art. 


This is one version of the picture where was Marilyn Monroe.

We have to think about how Finns understand Finnish art and how we want to introduce it to others, and we do not think these issues in Finland enough. We should ask ourselves whether we are as good as we think. Finland is the country where art is considered as the art industry product and we should ask whether we can do art that way and how we could be better, just in art and what it would require. Finnish tend to think, that available for order art in Finland should be and is a Finnish brand.  Finnish art is portrayed in the world with the words originality, Nordic, light, purity, clarity. Are we in Finland worthy of our reputation or are we traveling with old merit's in this matter?


I had leftover colors and carton found from trash box, and little too much extra time in my hands, so I did this.. I did try do something, that reflects bad taste. Oh my God, is this "Kitch Art"? I think, I did succeed in it. It was funny to paint it. I think, I starting to understand, why nobody understands my humor. But the size of this "painting" is like 100cmx120cm. But I do not know for sure, because I just did move, and I can not find my tape measure.

Hafjell Moose, too much color and too much movement, but that is the way I like it. So this one is totally ready. I will not change it. I let this Hafjell Moose be. I think this picture is challenging, but my point is that people do learn see pictures new way. Because the truht lies beneath the pictures, Hafjell Moose is good lesson, can you really be sure what you see.

This is an example of a modern painting, that I have painted. If I named this for example Brooklyn, it would limit the interpretation of the painting a lot. But the name of the painting is Brooklyn. The painting is not for sale because it has already found the owner.

Are you more than you think?

And that is the question what visual artist should think about. 

How to be more?

Be more, be art. 

Art is more. 

More art. 


Making art is always an intuitive process, why we believe that we can make it to a product, tie it to chains of available for order art.  

Instead of that we should look features in our own art culture from other cultures, it does not mean that our culture will somehow be compromised, but we will gain new strength when we share ours. Finnish Fusion Art, what it would be? What Finnish fusion art could be, to what flavors Finnish art could be combined in, if we start playing with this idea, where it will lead.. I think, it will lead for new ideas and opportunities.  


Art is always intuitive and more than a product. 

Art is subconscious. 

" I only do that kind of art, that gives me pleasure."

Next is a few pictures of me. First is the northern beauty, this painting tells how the norther regions is in danger. The second picture on right, was edited from norther beauty picture. Idea there was someone is looking from the past to the present. 

It took me 128 hours to edit, these two prints.  


You have to see things that others do not see, when you are a visual artist. It is your job to see things differently, to see options, to make art. 

I see things differently, because I am visual artist, that is my job. 

Are you able to think? DO ART.

See the limits, then you can break them.

You have to see differently.

You have to do differently. 

You have to experience differently.

-then you are art-

Alternative option, visual interpretation Art.

SO. You can not find representative art from my pages, I do not hate representative art, I just dislike it..


So I'm not doing traditional art, just modern art that can be blatant, challenging, my art doesn't fit every home, not to people who value traditional art in the visual art field, even though traditional art is also pleasing to me, but I only do the art I enjoy doing. The camera depicts reality as it is, a modern visual art depicts idea or concept. Catching the moment with the camera requires skill and thinking. 

So even there is for example my face in those two pictures above, they are  made by modern way, so there is also a concept in that picture, that means they are not representative art, those two pictures are not portrait type pictures, they are not  representative pictures, they do not show my face as my face are, even I did used my own picture.

For example, the flower image below has been edited from an image where is a real flower. So in the picture there is a white flower on a white background, that is, this flower shows only the edges, the frames of the flower. So that is the idea and concept of this picture. It's not just a picture of a flower, it is a picture of frames. So you already got the idea what are differences between representative and modern art, with this picture, and if you didn't get the idea, you are at the wrong page here.

That is, the picture below is not a representative art, even though there is a flower in the picture, because in the picture also has an idea, that is a concept, of that picture. Someone could say that the picture below is art, precisely because of the concept what in this picture has, even though the picture clearly shows that there is a flower, but still it is not representative art, what is highly valued here in Finland. 

So I did try tell that really clearly, because basically here in Finland is mainly representative art, because visual artist here in Finland do mainly commercial art,  because that is easier to do. Because when you are doing commercial art, they are trying to do their art with little effort, because doing a real visual art is really time consuming. Basically you have to remember, when you are buying art, you are buying a concept, but here in Finland you art buyer have to remember to think, is this art commercial art, or is it a product, and is that painting duplicated. Because painters here do duplicate they own paintings. 

"Art Frame"
"Art Frame"
How about this picture, what this picture frames?I think, this is really challenging picture, because this pictures name/frames is Desert Rose.
