16.06.2013 Hi folks! I'm going to have a summer exhibition with two of my friends Ilari Hautamäki & Kim Somervuori from Korjaamo Gallery. The exhibition is located in a small village called Pukkila, about 80 km from Helsinki. The exhibition space is a quite characteristic old wooden villa, so don't expect to see some super clean white cube with the latest iMacs. What you can expect to see though, is a high quality exhibition with some latest works from the three of us. So take a day off and have a contemporary art flavoured summertrip to Pukkila!
Welcome to the opening party Tuesday July 2nd at 19.00!
Exhibition is open 3.7. - 4.8.13
opening hours: wed - sun 11-17
21.10.2012 One new work added!
24.04.2012 Finally!! I got enough time and will to add all the pictures of the new works from my last solo show at Korjaamo Gallery.
The exhibition was a big success! Thank's again to all who came to the opening party and all of you who managed to visit afterwards.
A few months ago I moved to a new studio and I've been fixing it into my needs. Now I have twice as much space that I did in my old studio so I'm super duper exited! Maybe the next works will be twice as big aswell. That actually leeds to my next subject wich is,
that I've been chosen to represent the Korjaamo Gallery at the next nordic contemporary art fair Art Copenhagen next fall 14.-16. of september. Come and say hi if you are around!
11.02.2012 I'm happy to announce to you all, that my third solo exhibition is now up and running in Korjaamo Gallery untill February 26th. Yesterday's opening party was a blast and it was so nice to see so many of you there. Thank's for your support!
The Gallery is open every day from 11.00 to 17.00 and on thursdays till 20.00
04.09.2011 I added two out of three works that I promised last time. The pictures I took with my pocket camera where even lousier than these ones, so I will post that last one later on. Maybe I should hire a real photographer next time :)
Upcoming fall and winter will be super busy for me, as I start to seriously prepare my next solo exhibition to Korjaamo Gallery.
The opening party will be on 9th of February 2012, so before that there will be a lack of posts here.
Aftrer well rested summerholidays I'm more than excited and full of energy and inspiration to continue with my new stuff.
It's gonna be gooood :)
All the best,
22.06.2011 We are putting up a pretty awesome exhibition in the beginning of next month in Pori with my old classmates.
"13X is a fresh contemporary art exhibition of a high level. The lifelines of the artists crossed in Pori School of Fine Arts. 13X is a sort of class reunion, where a group of different art professionals meet again after a decade. What has happened since studying in art school? Can we still reach “the spirit of the art school"?"
So why not to take a trip to westcoast, Finlands own city of Baltimore and explore some good visual art and perhaps at the same trip see a few nice gigs in Pori Jazz festival. At least I will... and so will Mos Def & Elton John.

11.05.2011 Our Little Sea art zine is now released and available for 12€. More information about the release you´ll find from the projects own web page: www.ourlittlesea.com
"Our Little Sea -zine represents the view of 20 illustrators and artists on the current state of the Baltic Sea. The images, which are realized by varying techniques, illustrate the conflict that rises from the different needs of the life forms inhabiting the sea and the people living on its shores. Our Little Sea makes us ask whether we want to sacrifice this vulnerable sea or enjoy it in a way that respects its unique nature. For each sold copy, 1 euro will be donated to the protection of the Baltic Sea."
22.03.2011 Well it seems that updating these pages as often as I can means every four months :)
But there is a simple reason why such a long brake. I haven't had new stuff to show you or tell you, but guess what? Now I do!
The albumcover that I made for ILLS is now ready and the release for this 7" vinyl masterpiece Mark of Man is going to be in next month.
To listen the last track from the upcoming EP, follow this link: http://illshardcore.bandcamp.com/
03.12.2010 Ta da da datta daa!! I finally did it! My new online portfolio is up and running.
I had a pretty long break after my last solo exhibition, but now it is time to take some steps forward again.
I have just been confirmed that my next solo exhibition will be in February 2012 at Korjaamo Gallery, here in Helsinki.
Next year, before the solo exhibition, I'm also going to partisipate in a few groupshows, but I will get back to those later on.
I'm also partisipating in one nice and important project called "Our Little Sea".
It is an art zine that features Baltic Sea themed works from several artists and illustrators.
For each publication sold, 1 euro will go to the selected project for the protection of the Baltic Sea.

And last, but not least, the guys from ILLS asked if I would be interested in designing the albumcover for their new upcoming 7" Ep
next spring. Hard to say no, 'cause I've been a fan of their music since the beginning.
In the future I'll try my best to update these pages as often as I can. Let's call it a new years resolution.
Until next time,
